Description

Join us as a volunteer to support the 15th Annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk here in Portland! 

We depend on the passion of volunteers to complete our mission. Just a few hours of your day will make a difference. Volunteers help with check-in, water stations, information, and much more. Volunteer at a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event and make sure that no one fighting breast cancer has to walk alone.

What is Making Strides Against Breast Cancer?
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks are the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting communities with a shared determination to help free the world from the pain and suffering of breast cancer. Passionate walk participants raise critical funds that enable the American Cancer Society to fund innovative research; provide free, information and support to anyone touched by breast cancer; and help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it’s most treatable.
