The American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk of Rockford is an annual fundraising walk to raise awareness and funds to benefit patient service programs, education and prevention, and life-saving breast cancer research. In 2015, the Making Strides walk of Rockford had more than 3,000 in attendance and raised over $260,000.00!
This year's walk will take place on Saturday, October 15th at Rock Valley College. We are expecting more than 4,000 to attend and hope to raise $270,000.00. Registration is free but required either online prior to the event or day of event at the Registration Tent.
