September Incentive - Steve Madden JKAYA BONE TOTE!


For many, the American Cancer Society is a household name. However, fewer know about the Society’s advocacy affiliate, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), a dedicated group of volunteers who work with lawmakers at the state and federal level to help make the fight against cancer a legislative priority.  Looking forward to the 2017 legislative session, funding for investments in public health will remain a priority, and the many ACS CAN volunteers, advocates and survivors across Vermont are excited for new opportunities to fight cancer through public policy.  Click HERE for the ACS CAN membership form!

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 Chittenden County.

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.
