Making Strides Against Breast Cancer
Every three- to five-mile Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk is a powerful and inspiring opportunity to unite as a community to honor breast cancer survivors, raise awareness about steps we can take to reduce the risk of getting breast cancer, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society lead the fight against this disease with groundbreaking breast cancer research, information and support 24-7, and access to mammograms for women who need them. Every step you take is personal, and together we are helping to finish the fight against breast cancer.Sign Up Donate
