Lucille O'Neal

Lucille O’Neal Joins the American Cancer Society’s Orlando Strides Event as Honorary Chairperson.
Mother of Shaquille O’Neal Lends Voice to Cancer Cause. 

Reverend Doctor Lucille O’Neal will be the Honorary Chairperson at this year’s 20th Anniversary of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K Fundraising Walk on October 29th!

 Lucille has been a member of the Orlando community since 1992 when her oldest son, basketball great Shaquille O’Neal, began playing for the Magic.

Lucille has seen many family and friends battle cancer.  She is passionate about getting information on local and national resources into the hands of underserved communities so a cancer diagnosis is not an automatic death sentence.

Lucille O’Neal is joining forces with ACS and OrlandoStrides to strengthen its obligation to communities where the information is not readily available.  Members of these communities worry that having no insurance shuts them off from medical care.
What do we do?
How can we help?
Anything that we know about the American Cancer Society, any service, it should be disseminated to everybody.

A kickoff celebration event will take place at Lexus of Orlando, a pink premier OrlandoStrides sponsor, on August 25, 2016.

The 20th Anniversary OrlandoStrides walk will take place the morning of October 29th. Beginning at Lake Eola, the 3.2mile walk route will feature 20 entertainment stages culminating in a party at Church Street.  Last year’s event drew 60,000 participants and raised over $945,000.  This year’s 20th Anniversary fundraising goal of $1,000,000+ dollars will be used for breast cancer research and services.

Anyone interested in learning more about the event can call the local American Cancer Society offices at 407-581-2529.



Church Street party

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 Orlando.

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.
