The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting more than 300 communities to finish the fight.

Making Strides walkers turn awareness into action by helping raise more than $60 million for the American Cancer Society each year to save more lives from breast cancer. Today, we’re leading the way in transforming breast cancer from deadly to treatable and from treatable to preventable.

The progress we are making together is nothing short of remarkable. But we need your help to finish the fight.

Last year Making Strides of Providence welcomed more than 16,000 participants and raised more than $800,000.

Registration begins 7:30 a.m., walk begins at 9:00 a.m.
