The Making Strides movement raises lifesaving funds that support breast cancer patients, survivors, thrivers, and caregivers through every step of the journey. We’ve enhanced digital offerings available to anyone across the nation, including one-on-one breast cancer patient support services and the use of video chat to safely connect patients, caregivers, and family members with valuable services and resources through our website, in addition to a 24/7 helpline.
Every Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk is a powerful and inspiring opportunity to unite as a community to honor breast cancer survivors, and raise awareness about steps we can take to reduce the risk of getting breast cancer. Please see below for our current opportunities to volunteer! More may be added so be sure to check back often! When you see a shift you like, just click it to be taken to our volunteer community to sign up! If you have any questions about how to sign up, about specific roles, or how your large group can volunteer together- Please reach out to Stacie.Cross@cancer.org. Shift times are subject to change but we will keep you informed if a change is needed
