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.

Thank you for walking! Your participation helps the American Cancer Society ensure that no one faces breast cancer alone by funding innovative breast cancer research; promoting education and risk reduction; and providing comprehensive patient support to those who need it most.

Reminder: #GivingTuesday is on Tuesday, November 29th. #GivingTuesday is a glabal day of giving and a great time of year to ask friends and family to donate during the holiday season and end-of-year giving. Use your personal fundraising page and the parrticipant who raises the most online donations on November 29th will win a Strides prize!
