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.

Thank you to all of our walkers, teams, Pacesetters, sponsors and the weather, for making our 2015 Making Strides of the Twin Cities such a HUGE success! With over 2,500 walkers joining us at Lake Nokomis, we are on track to raise over $325,000 in the state of Minnesota for the fight against breast cancer!

Remember – the fight’s not over, so please continue to fundraise with us through the end of the year. You can still make the difference with matching gifts, local fundraisers, sending in those post-event donations. Please contact if we can help!

Mail all donations to: American Cancer Society, ATTN: Making Strides Twin Cities, 950 Blue Gentian Road, Eagan, MN 55121 

 **We are diligently working to update your dashboards with donations turned in at the event - AMAZING work to you all!! Thank you for the patience**


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

Here are many great fundraising ideas, both for individuals and teams, to help meet your goals. Be creative, have fun, and ask everyone to help support your efforts to finish the fight against breast cancer! Download the A to Z Fundraising Tips document »
