Cancer touches more than just the people diagnosed. It has an impact on everyone around them. That's why the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk unites communities to celebrate people who have battled breast cancer, educate people about ways to reduce their risk, and empower communities to join the fight. Every dollar you raise and every step you take will save lives by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back against breast cancer.
Since 1993, nearly 8 million walkers have raised more than $450 million to help fight breast cancer through participating in the noncompetitive, 3- to 5-mile events.
