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 have until December 31st!!

Thank you for being a part of our 2015 event.  We hope that your experience encourages you to continue to finish the fight against cancer with us in 2016 too. Even though our event is complete, it does not mean that fundraising stops there.  We have until December 31st, 2015 to make our goal of $33,000.  If you have not turned in your donations yet, please make sure you do to make it count for 2015. 


We Appreciate You

We hope you find that by participating with us in this event how important it is to come together, to speak louder, and to take action by fighting back together.  Cancer will not stop us from trying, cancer will not stop us from hoping, and cancer will not take away from us the most important people in our lives without a fight.  Together, we can make strides and show cancer who is in charge!

The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service. 


You can help finish the fight against breast cancer by raising funds for and walking with American Cancer Society Making Strides of Sonoma County. Join more than one million people each year who are helping to end breast cancer.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks are the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting nearly 300 communities with a shared determination to finish the fight. By signing up, fundraising, and participating in one of our noncompetitive, three- to five-mile walks, you will help us be there for everyone in every community touched by breast cancer. You will help those who are currently dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis, those who may face a diagnosis in the future, and those who may avoid a diagnosis altogether thanks to education and prevention.

Every Making Strides event is an incredible and inspiring opportunity to unite as a community to honor and celebrate breast cancer survivors, raise awareness about the disease, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society save lives from breast cancer by funding groundbreaking breast cancer research, providing free comprehensive information and support, and helping people take steps to reduce their risk of the disease or find it early when it’s most treatable.

Why your participation matters
The American Cancer Society has been saving lives for more than a century. We won't stop until we finish the fight. Find out how we’re putting your dollars to work now - doing the most in every community to help those with breast cancer today and working tirelessly to find cures to end the disease tomorrow.
