THANK YOU to all of our walkers, teams, Survivors, Pacesetters, and sponsors for making our 2016 Ocala Strides such a HUGE success! With over 2,000 walkers enjoying the celebration, we are on track to raise over $90,000!

 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…and because if you...the Making Strides of Ocala has raised $85,000!  But we don't stop here!!  


Breast Cancer Awareness month has just begun, so please continue to fundraise with us through the end of the year. You can still make a difference with matching gifts, local fundraisers, sending in those post-event donations. Please contact if we can help!

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 Ocala.

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.
