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.

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

This year, we have enlisted the help of 25 prominent area men who are committed to take a stand against breast cancer. The Real Men of South Alabama are a group of community leaders who have committed to ending the fight against breast cancer by committing to raise awareness and to raise money in this year’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Event.  Throughout the month of October, the Real Men will encourage women in their lives and in the community to take action in the fight against breast cancer by learning more about early detection methods and scheduling a mammogram.
