Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 2011 – We’ve Gone Pink!

Your eyes are not deceiving you, the ODS website has gone pink in honor of this Saturday’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. ODS is proud to be the flagship sponsor of this event – joining with the American Cancer Society to help create more birthdays.

Want to join us in the fight? Join the ODS Making Strides team. ODS family and friends are also welcome to join in the fight!

As the American Cancer Society phrases it best, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is “more than just a walk, the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event describes the progress we’re making together to save lives by helping people get well, stay well, find cures and fight back.”

This year’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer will be a 5 mile non-competitive walk to be held THIS Saturday, May 7, 2011. Registration will begin at 8:00am and start at 9:30am at the Rose Quarter Commons. Here are some ways to get involved.

Join a Team
When you sign up to join a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer team, you are committing to share your passion to save lives from breast cancer.

ODS is proud to invite you to join our team and walk with us! Join the ODS team.

Donate to a Walker
Making Strides is more than a walk – it’s a fundraising event. The dollars raised through Making Strides help the American Cancer Society continue its work of helping people get well, stay well, find cures and fight back against breast cancer, and we can’t do it without your donations. Search for a Making Strides participant by name to make a donation in support of their fundraising effort. Donate to a walker.

Donate to a Team
Have several friends all walking on the same team – no problem, support the whole team with a donation and know that you’re helping create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays. Search for a Making Strides team by name to make a donation to support their fundraising effort. Donate to a team. Not sure what team to donate to, but want to help in the fight against cancer? You can donate to the ODS team.

Make a General Donation
Last year Making Strides raised $60 million to help people get well, stay well, find cures and fight back against breast cancer and it happened one $10, $25 and $50 donation at a time. Make a general donation.
