About Making Strides
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 you raise and every step you take will help the Society create more pink in our community.
Since 1993, nearly 7 million walkers have raised more than $400 million to help fight breast cancer through participating in the noncompetitive, 3- to 5-mile events. In 2010 alone, nearly 800,000 walkers across the country collected more than $60 million to save lives from breast cancer.
Creating For More Pink Your Green
Together, ABC7 and the American Cancer Society have been creating pink for 17 years. What does "more pink" mean?
- It means that thanks in part to ABC7 and our team, there are 11 million breast cancer survivors alive today;
- It means there's groundbreaking research happening as we speak all over New York and New Jersey thanks to funding by the American Cancer Society;
- That local programs like "Look Good& Feel Better" can continue to help women learn make-up techniques to feel beautiful during treatment;
- That thousands of American Cancer Society volunteers and staff are working with legislators to secure funding for life saving mammograms for all women regardless of their insurance status;
- It means knowing you can ask a licensed professional any of your cancer questions 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
With just a little bit of green, we can help the society continue to create more pink in our community. Join us a walk near you at (ABC7 splash page).
