What is Making Strides Against 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 against breast cancer. Passionate walk participants raise critical funds that enable the American Cancer Society to fund groundbreaking breast cancer research; provide free, comprehensive information and support to those touched by breast cancer; and help people take steps to reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it is most treatable.
The American Cancer Society's mission is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.
The American Cancer Society is dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving loves and diminishing the suffering from cancer through research, education, advocacy and service.
