About Strides Against Breast Cancer

Last year the American Cancer Society raised over $115,000 with 1400+ people (that was in the rain too!). This year, they are shooting for 2000+ people and hopefully $150,000 raised. The walk is truly about bringing together those who have passion for ending the pain and suffering from breast cancer, celebrating our survivors and raising money that goes back to breast cancer patient programs and research.
