For the first time since 2006, it looks like the New York Mets are headed to the playoffs! According to the MLB calendar, this could mean a home game at Citifield on October 18, causing terrible traffic and parking nightmares for walkers in our Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event that same day. To avoid this potential problem, our Queens walk is being rescheduled to Sunday, November 8. 

We apologize for any inconvenience, but made this decision to give you – our most valued supporters – advance notice and the best experience possible. The city advised that our parking permit would be revoked if a home game were to occur on our original date.

The good news is that you have more time to recruit additional team members, ramp up your fundraising efforts, and plan a memorable day with your family, friends, and coworkers on Sunday, November 8. All other details regarding the walk has remained the same, i.e. start time, start location and parking information.


All participants must park in the Making Strides Parking lot located at Citi Field. We have secured the first 1,000 parking spots for FREE! 

GPS ADDRESS for the Parking Lot: 38-72 126th Street Corona, NY 11368

We encourage participants to carpool or take public transportation. Please be sure to check the MTA website for any service changes on event day.


Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a celebration of survivorship - an occasion to express hope and our shared determination to make this breast cancer's last century.

You can help finish the fight against breast cancer by raising funds for and walking with American Cancer Society Making Strides of Queens. Join more than one million people each year who are helping to end breast cancer.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks are the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting nearly 300 communities with a shared determination to finish the fight. By signing up, fundraising, and participating in one of our noncompetitive, three- to five-mile walks, you will help us be there for everyone in every community touched by breast cancer. You will help those who are currently dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis, those who may face a diagnosis in the future, and those who may avoid a diagnosis altogether thanks to education and prevention.

Every Making Strides event is an incredible and inspiring opportunity to unite as a community to honor and celebrate breast cancer survivors, raise awareness about the disease, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society save lives from breast cancer by funding groundbreaking breast cancer research, providing free comprehensive information and support, and helping people take steps to reduce their risk of the disease or find it early when it’s most treatable.

Why your participation matters
The American Cancer Society has been saving lives for more than a century. We won't stop until we finish the fight. Find out how we’re putting your dollars to work now - doing the most in every community to help those with breast cancer today and working tirelessly to find cures to end the disease tomorrow.
