PARSIPPANY — American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K Walk will be held on Sunday, October 21. The event will be held at the Century Office Campus, 4 Century Drive.

The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks raise awareness and funds to save lives from breast cancer. Each event is a noncompetitive five mile walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. The events raise money to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it’s most treatable.

From the opening ceremony to the post-walk entertainment, a Making Strides event is a celebration of survivors and opportunity to remember loved-ones lost. It’s a day that shouldn’t be missed and won’t be forgotten.

Check-in 8:00 a.m.

Sign up online for easy check-in the day of the walk. All event participants need to register for the walk. Once you arrive to the walk head to check-in where you will hand in any cash or check donations.

Opening Ceremony 8:30 a.m.

Come together with survivors, caregivers, men and women from all walks of life who are passionate about saving lives from breast cancer. Celebrate your shared efforts. Inspire each other to carry on. And take comfort in the knowledge that because of your dedication, no one walks alone.

Walk Begins 10:00 a.m.

We all walk together, but our event is not a race. Stop whenever you want or need to. You absolutely do not need to complete the entire walk if you are unable. The walk concludes when the final walker crosses the finish line.


The survivor area is a special area for survivors. Survivors are allowed to bring in one caregiver. You will have chances to win prizes and light refreshments will be served in this tent.

Caregivers will be able to visit this tent and write messages to their loved ones.
