We need your help. Almost everyone has been touched by breast cancer in some way. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women in the US (excluding skin cancer) and is second only to lung cancer as a cause of cancer death in women. The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk unites communities to support each other. We honor those touched by the disease and raise awareness and funds as we take steps closer to a world without breast cancer. Each year, more than one million passionate participants support our noncompetitive three- to five-mile walks held in more than 250 communities nationwide. Dollars raised by Making Strides Against Breast Cancer supporters help the American Cancer Society ensure no one faces breast cancer alone by funding innovative breast cancer research, promoting education and risk reduction, and providing comprehensive patient support to those who need it most.
Be our champion. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Team Leaders serve as champions in the fight against breast cancer. They inspire and motivate those around them to join their team and donate to their efforts. On event day, Team Leaders unite their team members and walk with their community as a unified force dedicated to helping us save lives from breast cancer. Join us today! With our collective power, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer participants can make the greatest impact to save lives and ensure no one faces breast cancer alone.
