The Making Strides Experience

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 walks 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.

The key to saving lives
From breast cancer
is you

Get Involved and Become a Team Leader

Team leaders can really 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 a part of your team. Then just set fundraising goals, organize fundraising activities, and, on the day of the event, lead your team through a fun walk day.

You could also join an existing team or participate as a volunteer at the event. However you choose to become involved, we'd love to see you there!


The money you raise at Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events helps save lives from breast cancer. Asking all your friends and family to donate is the first step. But you and your team members can hold fundraisers like a bake sale, car wash, etc. to raise even more money for your team. Facebook fundraisers can also be an important tool to help you reach your fundraising goals. Check out our resources below.

Celebrating Breast Cancer
Survivors & Caregivers

Survivors and caregivers are not only an inspiration to us all, they're a beacon of hope for those currently undergoing treatment.

Normani Kordei of Fifth Harmony became a caregiver at just 4 years old when her mother, Andrea Hamilton, was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer. They’re sharing their story to help increase awareness about the importance of breast cancer screenings and mammography.

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.
