What is Making Strides Against Breast Cancer?
Our 5k non-competitive walk honors and celebrates breast cancer survivors and loved ones we have lost, raises awareness to reduce the risk of the disease, and raises funds to end breast cancer.

How Can I help?
We need volunteers to help promote our breast cancer awareness walk at its new location. We specifically need help the day of the event. We need help with everything between people spread out throughout the walk route cheering on walkers, maintaining certain stations checking people in, set up, clean up, and more!
