About Us

The American Cancer Society’s 24th annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Boston ( ) is set for Sunday, October 2, 2016 at the DCR Hatch Shell.  The special fundraising walk unites the community to honor and celebrate breast cancer survivors, educates women about the importance of prevention and early detection, and raises funds to help the Society do the most for people with breast cancer today to end the disease tomorrow.  Volunteers are vital to the success of Making Strides in Boston, assisting and supporting 40,000 dedicated participants.  Volunteers are needed the day before Making Strides, Saturday, October 1, 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m., to help prepare snack bags for walkers, as well as set up for the following day’s event. On Sunday, October 2, volunteers are needed to help set up, clean up, cheer on walkers, and act as route monitors. Times vary depending on the volunteer role.  All day and hourly opportunities are available.   Please sign up to volunteer, or form a team, for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Boston and help finish the fight against breast cancer!  To volunteer, to form a team, or for more information, visit or contact Erin Sullivan; 508-270-4643;
