Thank you to all of our 2013 walkers, sponsors, volunteers, and performers - 40,000 strong - who came out in the rain on Sunday, Oct. 6, to show their support for the fight against breast cancer. Our fundraising total stands at $2.7 million, shy of our $3 million goal. But we can get there! Donations are still welcome on this site and please remind your donors about the power of matching gifts. Thank you, too, to the 80 people who enrolled in the American Cancer Society Cancer Prevention Study-3!

The fight to end breast cancer starts with a single step. Take that step with us at our October 6 American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk along the Charles River esplanade. Just a few hours of your time at this non-competitive, 5-mile walk will help save lives.
Making Strides is an opportunity for people of all ages to unite against a disease that affects 1 in 8 women. Some participants are recently diagnosed. Some are still in treatment. Some are years past their diagnoses. Many more are husbands, sisters, wives, parents, children, grandchildren, and friends of someone who has heard those words: "You have breast cancer."
SIGN UP today to walk in honor or memory of a loved one, and to raise awareness and funds to help the American Cancer Society continue fighting the disease with cutting-edge research, information and services, and access to mammograms. Then, make sure to Follow us on Facebook!

Why Making Strides and not some other breast cancer walk? Because the American Cancer Society is the leader in the fight against breast cancer. 1 of every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to us for help and support, such as rides to treatment, free lodging when treatments are far from home, and classes to help with the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment. American Cancer Society-funded research has led to mammography, discovery of the breast cancer genes, and drugs such as tamoxifen and Herceptin. 46 of the researchers we funded early in their careers - when few others would - have gone on to win the Nobel Prize.
100 years of saving lives Today, the American Cancer Society is helping save more than 400 lives a day that would have otherwise been lost to cancer. We won't stop until we finish the fight.
