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, and raise awareness about steps we can take to reduce the risk of getting breast cancer. The money raised helps the American Cancer Society fund groundbreaking breast cancer research, provide information and support 24-7, and provide access to mammograms for women who need them. Every step you take is personal, and together we are helping to save lives from breast cancer.Sign Up Donate
