The American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk is a noncompetitive, inspirational event, taking place at 8 a.m. Oct. 13, 2012, starting at 1 Crocker Blvd. in downtown Mount Clemens.

According to the American Cancer Society, more than 226,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer this year, and nearly 40,000 will die from the disease.
Funds raised through Making Strides enable the American Cancer Society to provide free resources and support to the one in two women newly diagnosed with breast cancer who turn to the Society for information and help; to invest in groundbreaking research to find, prevent, treat and cure breast cancer.
