Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Update

The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk unites communities to celebrate people who have battled breast cancer, educate people about ways to reduce their risk, and empower communities to join the fight. Every dollar raised will help save lives by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back against breast cancer.

With just a little over a month until our event, we are still raising money to reach our goal of $152,000. We need your help more than ever in the fight against breast cancer. When you donate people in our community will:

  • Have information and tools they need to stay well from breast cancer or find the disease early, when it's easiest to treat
  • Have a place to turn for help 24/7 if they are facing breast cancer
  • Benefit from the progress being made toward finding breast cancer's causes and cures
  • Get access to lifesaving mammograms and treatment

Thank you to everyone who has already made a donation to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign. There are 2.5 million breast cancer survivors who celebrated another birthday last year because of people like you who made a donation.  We couldn’t do it without you!

If you are interested in learning more about the walk, please visit, or contact Julie Robertson at 503.795.3958.
