Matching Gifts or Volunteering for Donations
There are 2 easy ways to get your company involved with your commitment to helping ease the burden for cancer patients and their families. Ask your company if they do "Matching Gifts". This means that they would donate a certain amount based on how much you raise for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. OR Find out if your company donates for employee volunteerism. If you are a Walmart or Sam's Club employee, they will allocate donations from the Walmart Foundation to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer by volunteering. Employees can receive as little as $250 for an individual and up to $5,000 for an event when at least 50 people volunteer for a combined 250 hours of service.

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 Chicago.
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.
