Strides Live Across America
Join us on October 18th as we showcase and unite breast cancer survivors and communities from coast to coast during a unique, one-hour broadcast at noon EST. Be a part of this public celebration and catch highlights from communities and supporters across the nation. Contribute or follow along on social media by using #StridesLive.
From large-scale traditional walks to unique local experiences and celebrations, the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer has united communities, companies, and individuals across the country in the fight to end breast cancer for more than two decades – and we have no intention of ever slowing down.
Join the Making Strides movement to help save lives and fund the future of breast cancer research and programs.
Funds raised through the Making Strides movement allow the American Cancer Society to serve breast cancer patients and their families where and when they need us most – even during a global pandemic.
More than $76 Million are currently invested in breast cancer research grants.
We respond to more than 1.4 million requests for cancer information through our helpline and chat services, and more than 134 million visitors looked to our website for cancer information.
Through a secure mobile app, we connect those facing breast cancer with trained breast cancer survivors to support them during their journey – anywhere in the country.
Join us on Facebook, YouTube or MakingStridesWalk.org to be a part of this public celebration and catch highlights from communities and supporters across the nation.

Would you like to lead the team or join the team?
This isn’t what I wanted.
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.
