ACS welcomes a flurry of activities to kick off October

Go Mode, #WeDriveFor, and Discovering the Future!

Throughout the month of October each year, the American Cancer Society inspires millions across the nation to join the movement, take action and increase awareness. Currently there are several ways to engage friends, family, and communities in our efforts to end breast cancer as we know it, for everyone. Here are just a few opportunities to show your support, celebrate the work we do and amplify the impact of ACS throughout the month.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer: It’s Go Mode Time!

We kicked off the Making Strides season last weekend with a handful of events, including our longest running event in Boston, but there’s still time to visit your local event, sign up to participate, or make a donation. If you are unable to join your local community this year, take part in Making Strides On the Go this Oct. 28. Making Strides On the Go is a live, interactive opportunity that allows supporters and survivors and thrivers to enjoy an interactive “walk where you are” Making Strides experience from the comfort of their own neighborhood -- including music, live programming and the ability to chat and share selfies with Striders from across the country in real time.
