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.

Striders! Here's a couple great post event fundraising opportunities--Tuesday, Dec. 1 is giving Tuesday. Encourage friends and family to donate to your Strides page. You can also promote Giving Tuesday by visiting

Change your Facebook and Twitter profiles to show others that you will be supporting the Society on Giving Tuesday. You can say who you will be giving for, and why you have chosen the Society!

Another fundraising opportunity is to become a Hope Raiser. The Hope Raiser challenge is available to any participant who raises an additional $100 during the month of November. Anyone who reaches this amount by end of November will receive this limited edition commemorative t-shirt that says “Pink Is The New Black” on the front and “Hope Rai$er” on the back. Will you be a Hope Raiser?
