Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Orlando

Join our Managing Editor, Jen Vargas, the American Cancer Society and a few thousand new friends as we walk through Downtown Orlando on Halloween morning! Register your team, your company or to volunteer your time/talents at www.orlandostrides.com!

Why do you walk? Maybe you walk in honor of a breast cancer survivor – the memory of their journey still fresh in your mind. Maybe you lost a loved one to breast cancer and you are walking in their memory. Maybe the memories of your own breast cancer experience motivate your efforts. Or maybe you walk to make sure no one ever has to hear the words “you have breast cancer.”

Whatever your motivation, when you join our family of supporters, you help the American Cancer Society finish the fight against breast cancer. Because of the dollars you raise and the steps you take, the American Cancer Society is able to help those touched by breast cancer in every community today and work to find cures to end the disease tomorrow.
