Every Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk is a powerful and inspiring opportunity to unite as a community to honor breast cancer survivors, raise awareness about steps we can take to reduce our risk of getting breast cancer, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease with breast cancer research, information and services, and access to mammograms for women who need them. Since Making Strides began 20 years ago, breast cancer death rates have declined more than 32 percent.

What to Expect at a Making Strides Event
Passion drives us to walk in and raise money for Making Strides. Passion for those we wish we could have back in our life, for those battling the disease, and for a world without breast cancer.
Making Strides gives us power to make a real difference. Not only are you helping those who are currently fighting the disease, you're helping everyone who hopes to never hear the words "You have breast cancer."
When you walk and raise money for Making Strides, you join one million volunteers across the country whose common purpose is to beat this disease. Without you, we can't do this.
The journey to end breast cancer starts with a single step. Start a team, join a team, or walk as an individual in one of our non-competitive, 3- to 5-mile events. However you decide to participate, we'll be here with you every step of the way. Our online tools make it easy to encourage friends and family to support you with a donation to help end breast cancer.
