American Cancer Society
For over 100 years the American Cancer Society has been lead by volunteers in communities across the globe to free the world from the pain and suffering from cancer. We do this by investing in research, advocating for legislation, assisting those on a cancer journey, and providing education for early detection & prevention measures.
Every three-mile 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. The money raised helps the American Cancer Society fund groundbreaking breast cancer research, provide information and support 24–7, and provide access to mammograms for women who need them. Every step you take is personal, and together we are helping to save lives from breast cancer. In Grand Rapids, your dollars support our local Hope Lodge, a home away from home to patients receiving cancer treatment in Grand Rapids, along with free rides to treatment, free wigs, and so much more.
