How Donations Save Lives Today, the American Cancer Society is helping save more than 400 lives a day that would have otherwise been lost to cancer. We won't stop until we finish the fight.
Volunteer at the event Become a Making Strides volunteer! By joining the American Cancer Society volunteer family, you can make even more of an impact in the fight to end breast cancer.
The fight to end breast cancer starts with a single step. Take that step with us at one of our American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks. Just a few hours of your time at one of the non-competitive, 3 to 5 mile events will help bring a lifetime of change for people facing breast cancer and their families.
Every Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is an incredible and inspiring opportunity to unite as a community to honor breast cancer survivors, raise awareness about what we can do to reduce our breast cancer risk, 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.
Sign up today and let's finish the fight against breast cancer.
Since 1993, more than 9 million cancer charity walkers across the country have raised more than $528 million through Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events to help fight breast cancer. Last year alone, dedicated supporters like you raised $68 million nationwide to help the American Cancer Society save more lives to help finish the fight against the disease.
