Traditional, large scale Making Strides walks will not be held in 2020

Website banner and announcement live on all local event web pages

Our commitment to fighting breast cancer is stronger than ever, but how we rally communities and celebrate this fall will look very different. To protect the health and safety of our participants and staff, the American Cancer Society will not hold traditional, large scale Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks in 2020.

On Friday, July 10, an updated website banner and COVID-19 event announcement went live on all local event web pages.

Fortunately, Making Strides has always been more than just a walk – it's a movement. This is an important distinction for all of us to embrace. Although in 2020 we won't convene crowds of walkers, we will mobilize this movement in several new ways that will still engage our communities and raise critical revenue to sustain research and programming.

This year we are making it easier for anyone, anywhere to make an impact in the fight against breast cancer. Learn more by tuning into the nationwide virtual kickoff at 12 p.m. ET on Tuesday, August 11. Register for it now.
