This October may look different, but breast cancer hasn’t stopped and neither has the American Cancer Society and its dedicated group of volunteers with the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Las Vegas presented by OptumCare Cancer Care movement.

Join the first ever Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Las Vegas STRIDES RIDE on Oct. 18 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Drive through the south parking lot of Red Rock Casino Resort Spa.

In keeping with safety guidelines and socially distant protocols, the Society asks that participants please wear masks and do not get out of their car during the route.

Participants, survivors, and the community are encouraged to decorate their vehicles with past or present team banners and all things pink. T-shirts, signs, window paint, streamers, and more are encouraged to show your pink spirit and your commitment to the fight against breast cancer.

There ability to fund cancer research has been reduced by 50% in 2020 – their lowest investment this century if current trends continue.

Funds raised through the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer movement enables the American Cancer Society to help breast cancer patients, a population vulnerable to COVID-19, to navigate their cancer journey during a pandemic.

The Society offers advice on coping with cancer treatment side effects, answers questions about health insurance and so much more.
