Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a celebration of survivorship - an occasion to express hope and our shared determination to make this breast cancer's last century.

A huge thank you to everyone who helped make our 15th annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Erie a wonderful event. We had a great turnout and a beautiful day! 

We know that several teams are still fundraising, so right now we are anticipating that we will raise about $95,000 toward our goal of $111,000 (amount reflected on the website only includes credit card donations made on the site and cash or check donations entered by participants through their dashboard). Have you collected any cash or check donations? Check out this document that will walk you through a few simple steps to add those donations and recognize those who are helping you finish the fight. 

Money raised through the end of December will still count toward our event. So please continue to ask friends and family for support, consider having additional fundraisers, see if your childrens' school would do a "pink game" or a penny war, etc. There are lots of things we can all do to help us get closer to that goal. Visit our local fundraisers page to see what is already planned for the upcoming months and consider supporting these events.

Remember that the money raised will help us continue our mission to help those affected by this disease and fund life-saving cancer research. Together we can make sure that one day we will have a world with no cancer!

You can help finish the fight against breast cancer by raising funds for and participating in the 15th Annual American Cancer Society Making Strides of Erie. Join more than one million people each year who are helping to end breast cancer.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks are the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting nearly 300 communities with a shared determination to finish the fight. By signing up, fundraising, and participating in one of our noncompetitive, three- to five-mile walks, you will help us be there for everyone in every community touched by breast cancer. You will help those who are currently dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis, those who may face a diagnosis in the future, and those who may avoid a diagnosis altogether thanks to education and prevention.

Every Making Strides event is an incredible and inspiring opportunity to unite as a community to honor and celebrate breast cancer survivors, raise awareness about the disease, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society save lives from breast cancer by funding groundbreaking breast cancer research, providing free comprehensive information and support, and helping people take steps to reduce their risk of the disease or find it early when it’s most treatable.

Why your participation matters
The American Cancer Society has been saving lives for more than a century. We won't stop until we finish the fight. Find out how we’re putting your dollars to work now - doing the most in every community to help those with breast cancer today and working tirelessly to find cures to end the disease tomorrow.
