Making Strides

Put your passion to work as a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Volunteer.

Breast cancer is a personal cause to many people. Perhaps you have personally faced the disease or you have had friends or family members who have. Volunteers are the heart of the American Cancer Society and events like Making Strides walks simply could not happen without you.

Your support will bring you community together with determination, hope, empathy, caring, and passion, so no one has to walk alone.


The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks raise awareness and funds to save lives from breast cancer. Each event is a noncompetitive 3 to 5k walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. The events raise money to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it's most treatable.

From the opening ceremony to the post-walk entertainment, a Making Strides event is a celebration of survivors and opportunity to remember loved-ones lost. It's a day that shouldn't be missed and won't be forgotten. For more information, please visit www.makingstrideswalk.org/easternlongisland or call 1-800-227-2345 .

The American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks raise awareness and funds to save lives from breast cancer. The Making Strides of Long Island bring together more than 80.000 local participants and have raised more than $2,5 Million annually.
