The American Cancer Society promises a day of hope, inspiration, and entertainment.

Hang out at the Main Stage. With event emcees Dr. Kim Mulvihill (CBS5) and Kevin Brown (KBLX) providing constant commentary, the stage will offer musical and cultural performances throughout the day. In addition, come listen to a number of speeches from the American Cancer Society leaders and members of your community. Entertainment will begin at 7:30am.

Celebrate survivorship and hope. All participants are encouraged to stop by our Survivor and Friends tent to hear personal stories of hope. Survivors have the opportunity to share their own story of survivorship as well as receive a gift to acknowledge their courage and strength in their battle against breast cancer.

Children of all ages (and those adults that remain young at heart) are welcome at the Youth Against Breast Cancer tent. Volunteers provide games and activities for children and their parents that are both fun and educational.

Let your voice be heard by coming to the Hope Starts Here tent to learn about the advocacy and mission activities of the American Cancer Society and what you can do in this part of the fight against breast cancer.

Don’t forget your Making Strides memorabilia. Visit the Making Strides Shop to purchase event t-shirts, hats, and sweatshirts or swing by the Fun Stuff tent to buy extra pink flair (pom-poms, bead necklaces, etc) at discount prices. You can also get your picture taken. Photographers will take your team’s photo at one of the Team Photo areas around the route. You can later buy your team’s photo through the Strides Web site. All proceeds from event sales will benefit the American Cancer Society.
