Every year the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer hosts various walks in an effort to raise awareness of breast cancer and raise funds to save the lives of those with breast cancer. Each event is a noncompetitive walk that provides an opportunity to bring people together and 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 individuals reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it is most treatable.
