Making Strides of Harrisburg resources for you and your team: 


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 Harrisburg.

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.

Tribute Garden Signs

On October 15th, 2016, participants at the Making Strides Walk of Harrisburg will pay tribute to loved ones through the Making Strides Tribute Garden. At the event, signs with names prominently displayed will be presented in an area of reflection to remember and honor those who have been affected by breast cancer.  As participants walk through the Tribute Garden, the signs remind and inspire them that the fight against breast cancer is about real people in our community.

You're just a quick step from volunteering to support the Making Strides walk! None of this would be possible without dedicated volunteers donating their time and talent. Walk with the American Cancer Society volunteer family, and you will help us to end the pain and suffering caused by breast cancer.
