Raise the most funds in September and Treat Yourself to a Spa Party!

With only about 6 weeks to go until the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in San Diego, it's time to get your fundraising started or pumped up!  The person who raises the most in the month of September will win a Spa Facial Party on a deck overlooking America's Cup Harbor for you and 5 friends! (This has been changed from a boat to a deck because of resource limitations.) Beverages and hors d'oeuvres will be served while you and your friends pamper yourselves, relax your mind, rejuvenate your soul and reinvigorate your skin!


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.
