Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk returns to downtown Detroit

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WJBK) -

Join thousands of walkers as they take a step towards finding a cure for breast cancer at the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk Saturday, Oct. 12 in downtown Detroit.

All of the action begins at 9 a.m. at Ford Field lot 4 located at Brush and Montcalm.

The Making Strides event is not a race; it is a celebration of survivorship, an occasion to express hope, and a shared goal to end a disease that threatens the lives of so many people we love. When you participate in the Making Strides event, you're helping create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays - where breast cancer never steals another year from anyone's life.

Click here to register for the Detroit event.

On-site registration is also available, Saturday morning at 8:00 a.m.

Your support enables the American Cancer Society to save lives by:

  • Helping people stay well by educating and empowering women to live healthy lives and reduce their risk for breast cancer, and to get screening tests such as mammograms to find breast cancer early, when it is most treatable
  • Helping people facing breast cancer get well by providing information, day-to-day help, and emotional support to guide them through every step of their breast cancer experience
  • Finding cures by investing in and conducting research that leads to groundbreaking discoveries into breast cancer's causes and cures
  • Fighting back by working with lawmakers to support laws that help women battle breast cancer and help all women get access to screenings and care
