Thank you to everyone who came out to walk on October 24th. It was a beautiful day full of inspiration and hope as about 13,000 people came together and raised about $210,000 to help finish the fight against breast cancer. You can access the pictures through your Making Strides dashboard. They are also posted on our Facebook page. Please share yours on our Facebook page, too!


There's still time for you to reach your goals!
You can fundraise until December 31st.


Photos from the survivor gala are now available. Please email Steve Owens at and he will email you a digital copy of your photo.



You can help finish the fight against breast cancer by raising funds for and walking with American Cancer Society Making Strides of Brevard. 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.
