PHOENIX – Your involvement with Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is as unique and special as the story that motivates you. Each step you take is personal. And each step is helping to save lives. More than a walk, the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer describes the progress we’re making together to fight this disease, provide comfort and hope, and save lives from breast cancer.

Thanks to you, and the many others who participate and donate to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, we are able to make a difference, make history, and make strides.
Whether this is your first Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event or your 15th, we hope you'll lend your support to the American Cancer Society.

What is Making Strides?
Making Strides events are noncompetitive walks ranging in distance from 3 to 5 miles. The event unites people of all ages with a common goal to fight breast cancer and save lives. Chances are, you’ve been affected by breast cancer in some way, and Making Strides gives you the power to fight back and make a difference.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is your opportunity to honor breast cancer survivors, remember people we have lost, and raise funds and awareness to help end this disease. Making Strides is not a race; it is a celebration of survivorship, an occasion to express hope, and a shared goal to end a disease that threatens the lives of so many people we love.
Most Making Strides events have no registration fee and no fundraising minimum. We’ve provided fun and easy-to-use online tools that allow you to personalize your experience. Whether you upload a photo, tell your story, or add your fundraising thermometer to your Facebook page, you can make this experience your own and share with others your reason for making strides.
