No matter where you live, there’s likely to be a walking event in your community that focuses on raising awareness and support for breast cancer, as well as providing a sense of community for the thousands who are affected by this condition.

It’s good to keep moving, especially in hard times, and it’s even better to move with others. While these walks raise money for breast cancer research and treatment, the act of getting a group together for this purpose can be so powerful. Whether you’re an individual moving through breast cancer yourself, or you’re a loved one walking beside someone, breast cancer walks exemplify how strong we become when we do things together.

No matter why you walk, sharing this experience is a tangible way of sharing the burden of breast cancer with those who long for hope and healing.

  • Susan G. Komen® has added new walk locations this year and offers several different walk formats, even a virtual walk — Walk Where You Are — for those unable to travel. Learn more here.
  • The American Cancer Society also offers Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, a 3-5 mile noncompetitive walk, raising funds for lifesaving breast cancer research and advancing health equity through essential programs and services. After three decades, MSABC has become the nation’s largest and most impactful breast cancer movement with walks in over 150 communities.


There is so much support and impact to be found in these organizations and their various programs. Our hope is that people will always walk with and for their loved ones battling breast cancer. There are so many ways to do this, but if you know someone going through breast cancer, reach out to them and offer your time and attention to them. It will mean so much.

If you know someone who doesn’t have the option of walking, consider giving them a set of For The Girls pink wind chimes to inspire a peaceful, healing moment in their life, reminding them that they’re still moving and never, ever alone.
