Get Involved

The American Cancer Society would not be successful without the help of our generous donors and volunteers. Because of you, we've been able to fund life-saving breast cancer research studies, crucial patient care programs, and education and prevention initiatives that have helped thousands of people across the globe. That's why it's so important to participate in your Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event and fundraiseóbecause when you do, you help save lives from breast cancer.

WAYS TO PARTICIPATE

Sign Up

Joining a Making Strides event is easy. All you have to do is sign up to participate or volunteer.
Here's how to get involved:

Team Leaders

Team leaders can really help Making Strides events successful. The first thing to do is recruit friends, family and anyone you want to spend a day with to be team members. Then just set fundraising goals, organize fundraising activities, and, on the day of the event, lead your team through a fun walk day. Start a team

Participants

There are several ways you can get involved. You can join an existing team, start your own, or volunteer at the event. However you choose to become involved, we'd love to see you there. Sign Up

Volunteer

Our Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events depend on volunteers to be successful. Share your time so that no one touched by breast cancer has to face a breast cancer diagnosis alone. As a volunteer, you may help with check-in, water stations, information, and much more. To learn about volunteer opportunities in your area, sign up now or call 1-800-227-2345. If you want to help us save lives from breast cancer, volunteer.

Survivors and Caregivers

Survivors are the heart of every Making Strides event. We have activities and events designed specifically for you. Come out and share the day with us.

If you'd like to join the survivor activities at the event but don't want to join a team, that's possible too.

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.

Join us. Donate today. Or walk with us.
