Arizona is Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

Since 1993, nearly 6 million walkers have raised more than $400 million through the American Cancer Society Making Strides events. Last year, almost 700,000 walkers across the country collected over $60 million to help create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays.

Join us for an inspiring event to honor breast cancer survivors, raise awareness about the disease, and to help save lives. With every step you take, you'll be giving people facing breast cancer more candles to light.

The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk is as unique and special as the stories that motivate each of our dedicated walkers, donors and volunteers. Every step that we take is personal and each donation helps save lives. Making Strides walks are non-competitive and three to five miles in length.

There are many ways you can get involved. You can register to participate and
  • Start your own team
  • Join an existing team
  • Participate as an individual walker
  • Volunteer to help with walker check-in, refreshments, registration
  • Show your support by donating to a participant or the event

  • If you are outside of Arizona, you can still find an event near you and join us.

    One of the ways the American Cancer Society is saving lives is by finding cures through groundbreaking research. The Society invests more in breast cancer research than in any other cancer type. Society-funded research has led to the discovery of lifesaving breast cancer treatments, including Tamoxifen and Herceptin.
