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 each and everyone of you who participated in this year's Making Strides of Walnut Creek event.  You came out and showed your community that we are fighting mad at breast cancer.  You walked with your family, friends, co-workers, neighbors and created another successful year.

You can continue to make donations until December 31st.  If your team wants to have a fundraiser, let us know.  We will be there to support you and post your fundraiser on the website and share it with all the participants.  

We have a few teams who have expressed that they want to exceed last years totals and are looking for a challenge!  Does your team want to challenge other teams to raise the bar and exceed your team goal? 

Do you want to be a Pacesetter?  You can continue to collect online donations and once you reach $2500 raised online we will congratulate you with a special gift.  How about it....want to reach Pacesetter?

If you loved this event so much and you have ideas or want to be on the planning committee, let us know, we are looking for YOU!

*********************************************************************************

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 Walnut Creek.

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.
