THANK YOU, SOUTHWEST MO! You raised more than $200,000 for your American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in 2015. Register TODAY for our 8th Annual Event on Saturday, October 22, 2016, so that we can all walk together- so that no one ever walks alone.  

 Thank you for your continued support!



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 Southwest MO.

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.
