You can do the 5K outdoors on a track, trail, or on the street; or even indoors on a treadmill! We Run 5K has agreed to donate a portion of every registration received from through our special link below back to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer - San Diego!

If you have never participated in a Virtual Run before, it's easy! You register for the event, do the walk/run at your convenience wherever you would like, and then post a pic of yourself at the end of your 5K to their website or social media page.

Debbi's Harley fundraiser


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.

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 San Diego.

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.
