Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

October 29, 2011

The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk is as unique and special as the stories that motivate our dedicated walkers, donors and volunteers.

Each step they take is personal.
And each donation is helping to save lives.
And each volunteer helps create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays.

More than just a walk, the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event describes the progress they are making the walk together to save lives by helping people get well, stay well, find cure and fight back.

In 2010
More than 800,000 walkers across the country joined the American Cancer Society in their united fight against breast cancer. Together, they raised more than $60 million through Making Strides events - and they did it one donation at a time.

More than a walk, the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a powerful and inspiring event that unites communities to celebrate people who have battled cancer, raise awareness about the steps you can take to help prevent the disease, and raise money to find cures and support programs and services for those facing the disease.
Here are just a few of the ways you can join them!

Why am I walking?
Because I know that I will make a difference. I know that by raising funds and walking in my Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event, I will help the American Cancer Society continue to save lives from breast cancer – and create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays.

How do they do it? Every day, the Society is helping people stay well by helping them take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer or find it early, when it is easiest to treat; helping people get well with information, day-to-day help, and emotional support to guide them through every step of a breast cancer experience; by finding cures and promising new treatments through funding and conducting research; and by fighting back by working with lawmakers to help all women get access to screenings and care.

I believe that one day, breast cancer will never steal another year from anyone's life – and we will live in a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays. That's why I'm walking. Not only is this my opportunity to join my community to fight back against breast cancer, but it is also a way to inspire hope by raising funds and awareness to help those facing the disease.

And you can be a part of it, too.

I have signed up to walk and raise funds to support the American Cancer Society's efforts to fight breast cancer. I hope you will join my team or make a donation in support of my participation. Together, we can make strides to end breast cancer!

They need your help to beat this disease! By raising funds for a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event, you will provide hope and help to millions of people nationwide whose lives have been forever changed by this disease.

Join them for a few hours of exercise, inspiration, camaraderie, entertainment, and most importantly, to honor someone you know who has been affected by breast cancer - especially if that person is you.

Do you have several friends all walking on the same team? No problem. You can support the whole team with a donation and know that you're helping create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays. Search for a Making Strides team by name to make a donation to support their fundraising efforts.

Last year Making Strides events raised more than $60 million to help people stay well, get well, find cures, and fight back against breast cancer - and it happened one $10, $25, and $50 donation at a time.

Making Strides volunteers are the driving force behind our incredible event.
Share your passion to help create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays by sharing your time as a volunteer.
