The Three Steps to Making Strides

What can you expect when you join Making Strides? From the day you sign up through October , you’ll be fueling the fight against breast cancer by fundraising.

When you sign up for Making Strides you can choose to lead a team, join an existing team, or participate solo - the choice is yours.

Whether you're on a team, leading a team, or even participating solo, get friends and family to join you - more people means more power to end breast cancer.

Send emails and texts. Set up a Facebook fundraiser. There are lots of ways to raise money for Making Strides. We’ll even give you tips and tools to make it easier.

SUPPORTING Survivors, Thrivers, and Caregivers

The Making Strides movement raises lifesaving funds that support breast cancer patients, survivors, thrivers, and caregivers through every step of the journey. We’ve enhanced digital offerings available to anyone across the nation, including one-on-one breast cancer patient support services and the use of video chat to safely connect patients, caregivers, and family members with valuable services and resources through our website, in addition to a 24/7 helpline.



Breast Cancer Survivor

“The money we raise goes to fund Reach to Recovery, Road to Recovery, the Hope Lodge, the 1-800 number, and research. It's one thing to raise money for something you know about. It's a whole other thing to be a cancer survivor benefiting from the money that you have been raising for years.”


Breast Cancer Survivor

“Making Strides gave me all the reasons to want to be a survivor, to fight and help others, to let them know there is a brighter day and you're going to make it through it.”


Metastatic Breast Cancer Thriver

“When I first was told I had metastatic breast cancer, it was too scary to think beyond six months. But now, because of the treatment options that are available, I can dare to dream what a future might be like for me.”


Breast Cancer Survivor

“If you're coming to Strides as a survivor or a newly-diagnosed patient, you walk in and you see everyone in every stage. You see people 30 years out, you see people 30 weeks out. You see part of you and it's so valuable to have a connection with someone that has been through what you've been through.”

Apart from skin cancers, breast cancer is the most common cancer type in women. In fact,



people will be diagnosed with breast cancer



cases of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) will be diagnosed in women

If you or someone you love is concerned about developing breast cancer, have been recently diagnosed, are going through treatment, or are trying to stay well after treatment, we can help you find the answers you need.

Welcome to our Team Page. We've formed a team because this cause is important to us. We want to help. And walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is the best way we can do that. We all have different reasons for participating but we share a determination to help save lives from breast cancer.

There are so many ways that the money our team raises helps. It’s helping fund innovative research. It's providing free information for people dealing with the disease. It’s providing rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.

How We Support the American Cancer Society

Of course we walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. And we solicit donations from family, friends, and other supporters. But we also schedule fundraisers in lead-up to the big event. Bake-sales, car washes, and countless other types of events. And we promote those on social media, through Facebook and Twitter, by word of mouth, and through flyers at work and around the neighborhood. The success of fundraising events depends on two things - hard work and getting the word out. And we're out to do both. Keep an eye out for our fundraising events.
