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! Thank You! Thank You! Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Greater Portland was a SUCCESS again this year because of YOU! Together with 1500 of our closest cancer fighting friends, we were able to raise over $156,000 to fund the American Cancer Society's Life-Saving Mission, and cutting edge breast cancer research!

Don't forget, donations can be accepted through December 31, 2016! Online at or by mailing them:

We certainly hope that you had as great of a time as we did! Be on the look out for some great photos taken by a couple awesome volunteers!

Keep an eye on your inbox, you will be receiving a link to a survey (from a third party) shortly about your experience. We want to hear from you! We can't improve if we don't have your thoughts!

Have a great rest of your Sunday!


Thank You Pink


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 Greater Portland.

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.
