Gathered with friends, family and community members, your local Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the place to come together to honor breast cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and take action to end suffering and death from a disease that has already taken too much.
But, did you know it's an also an incredibly important place to advocate for breast cancer issues? Surrounded by people who are so passionate about the fight against breast cancer, this event provides an unparalleled setting for advancing ACS CAN’s lifesaving breast cancer work.
We're looking for passionate volunteers like you to lead advocacy activities at your event. It's impactful, fulfilling and fun! ACS CAN staff provide the tools, resources and training you need to be highly successful.
Our advocacy activities include:
- Asking people to sign petitions to Congress on issues like increasing federal funding for breast cancer research and ensuring all women have access to lifesaving mammograms
- Managing the ACS CAN booth with fun and educational activities before the Making Strides walk gets started
Are you ready for a new and rewarding challenge at your Making Strides Against Breast Cancer? Maybe you just want to learn a little more?
