The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk raises awareness and funds to save lives from breast cancer. The event is a noncompetitive 3.5 mile walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. Making Strides raises 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.
