The Making Strides Experience

Join Making Strides Against
Breast Cancer and Save Lives

Nearly 250,000 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. That could be your mother, sister, daughter, your wife, or even you. We hold Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events so anyone touched by breast cancer won't have to face their diagnosis alone. We do it to raise awareness and money to fund research, support services, and early detection. We hold Making Strides events to save lives.

Celebrate Breast Cancer
Survivors & Caregivers

Survivors are the embodiment of everything Making Strides events are about – saving lives from breast cancer. They inspire participants, reminding them of why they're walking. For those currently under treatment, survivors are a beacon of hope. And there can be no survivors without caregivers – those selfless people who put others' needs before their own. It's survivors and caregivers who make the Making Strides experience as special as it is.

The Making Strides Experience

The key to saving lives
From breast cancer
is you

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events celebrate survivors and raise awareness and money to help the American Cancer Society save lives. The money is used to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it's most treatable.

The American Cancer Society has played a critical role in many breast cancer research breakthroughs in recent history. And the next breakthrough could be right around the corner because money raised through Making Strides events currently helps fund countless research and training grants in areas including genetics, drug development, and epidemiological studies. Previously the American Cancer Society has funded potentially lifesaving breast cancer drugs such as Tamoxifen and Herceptin. Money raised this year could go to develop the next generation of lifesaving treatments.

The American Cancer Society offers support programs that assist people throughout their breast cancer journey. For instance, Road to Recovery provides rides for patients who aren't able to get to treatment. Hope Lodge® provides a comfortable place to stay for those who have to travel far from home for treatment. And Reach To Recovery® provides patients with one-on-one emotional support and guidance from someone who has faced breast cancer themselves.

Prevention and education guidelines have been developed by The American Cancer Society and have quickly become the industry standard. Regular testing, exercise, and eating healthy can also help reduce your risk of breast cancer.

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.
