Started by the American Cancer Society, Make Strides Against Breast Cancer is a nationwide event that raises money to help fund breast cancer research. During the events, participants walk to honor breast cancer survivors, educate the public about prevention, and unite communities in the fight against the disease. The pink ribbon is the international emblem of breast cancer awareness that symbolizes support for those with breast cancer. Making strides began in 1984 with cancer survivor Margery Gould Rath as a way to honor fellow cancer survivors, raise awareness, and raise funds for the American Cancer Society. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a campaign organized by breast cancer charities to increase awareness and raise funds. It is celebrated internationally each October.
