Mission Statement

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 services.

Description

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is more than just the name of a walk; it describes the progress we’re making together to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

Each year our walks are held nationwide to celebrate those who have battled breast cancer, educate about ways to reduce the risk, and empower communities to join the fight. Since 1993, nearly 8 million walkers have raised more than $450 million to fund breakthrough breast cancer research and help people stay well, get well, find cures and fight back. Thanks in part to the dollars raised by Making Strides supporters, 2.9 million breast cancer survivors will celebrate another birthday this year.

Here in Northwest Ohio, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is celebrating our 9 th year! In that time, we have raised over $900,000 dollars. Each year, more and more people come out to support the efforts of the American Cancer Society and join our cause. In 2014, 4,500 supporters walked the 5K route and helped to raise a total of $125,000.
