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.  







Volunteer at our event
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.
