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 fundraise - because when you do, you help save lives from breast cancer.
WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
Team leaders can help make 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.
If you don't want to lead your own team, you can join an existing team, join as an individual or volunteer at the event. However you choose to become involved, we'd love to see you there.
Our Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events depend on volunteers to be successful. Share your time so that no one 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 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. And thanks to our partner, Zeta Tau Alpha, the survivor experience at our events is more exciting than ever. From recognizing and honoring survivors to coordinating special activities, the love of ZTA and our Making Strides staff shines through, creating an amazing day for everyone.
All survivors are welcome to join in the activities, even if they don't want to join a team!

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.
