The No. 1 reason people donate to the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk is because someone asked them to! Whether you are walking on your own or are part of a team, the goal is to reach out to as many people as possible and ask them to support your effort with a donation of any amount. There are more than 2 million people who have been treated for breast cancer, and many others who have been touched by the experience of friends and loved ones.
