American Cancer Society Seeking Donations to Mark 20 Years of Making Strides Campaign
Despite pandemic restrictions that have canceled in-person fundraising walks in 2020, the American Cancer Society (ACS; makingstrideswalk.org/LincolnNE ) is seeking donations to support 20 years of the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer awareness and fundraising campaign in Lincoln. In its two decades, the effort has helped fund breakthrough research, 24/7 support for cancer patients, access to lifesaving screenings, and leaps in progress that have saved 375,000 lives—and these needs don’t stop for COVID. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer, and the Making Strides walk unites all communities, companies, and individuals across the country in the fight to end breast cancer. Making Strides has always been more than just a walk, though. It’s a movement.
Because of the pandemic, how supporters unite and fight back this fall looks different, but the American Cancer Society of Lincoln’s passion to end breast cancer remains just as intense as ever. That’s why they’re asking you to join the movement and help fund the future of breast-cancer research. Without a Making Strides walk, millions of dollars in breast-cancer research may otherwise go unfunded, 1.4 million calls unanswered, and nearly 500,000 patients could lose their free ride to treatment or a place to stay when they must travel away from home.
