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.

Making Strides of Leon County was such a tremendous success and you were a part of making that happen!  Although we got to enjoy our walk on a beautiful fall afternoon, your support to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer does not have to end there.  We will continue fundraising efforts for this event through the end of 2016.  If your team was not able to raise dollars before the event, please know that every $10, $25 or $50 team helps us continue to support individuals facing breast cancer! You can continue to donate online or mail in cash or check donations to The American Cancer Society office in Tallahassee (2619 Centennial Blvd., Suite 101, Tallahassee, FL 32308).

THANK YOU for supporting Making Strides of Leon to ensure that no one facing breast cancer has to walk alone!
