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 for an amazing event!

We just wrapped up our eigth annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and we want to thank everyone who came out. A huge "Thank you" to Jason and Teri Ann from Soft Rock 98.9 and Stefani Booroojian from KSEE24 for being our amazing emcees. "Thank You" to our amazing performers, Omar Alhindi, Johnathan Sterling, Artists Association of Fresno State and the always entertaining Parker, from the Fresno Grizzlies.

Mostly, "THANK YOU" to every person who came out, fundraised, formed a team, shared their story, showed support, or is doing their part in this battle. Without you we literally could not do what we do. You are why we make strides!

Don't stop Making Strides!

The walk may be over but we're still fundraising through the end of 2016. You can still send in donations to your local ACS office, add funds to your personal or team page and hold fundraisers. The walk is one day, but the work goes on year round. Stay committed and help us close out the year strong!

We believe that everyone with breast cancer should have support.

That's why the American Cancer Society is so determined to be here for the survivors, the patients, the caregivers, and the millions saved through early detection.

Help raise funds for groundbreaking breast cancer research, life-saving education, and critical patient services by walking in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Making Strides of Central Valley.

Get ready to join more than one million volunteers nationwide. When you sign up, fundraise, and participate in one of our noncompetitive, three- to five-mile walks, you will be there to support every person affected by breast cancer.

We walk to make sure that anyone touched by this disease has a hand to hold. So give us yours by taking the first steps in supporting this year's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event.

You can start a team, or keep your team going. And keep raising awareness and donations.

Begin today! The sooner we start, the farther we'll go.

Join us now.
