Make Strides with Alamo Capital

Join us and the American Cancer Society as we make strides against breast cancer!

Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women in the United States, other than skin cancer. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lunch cancer. 

The chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer some time during her life is about 1 in 8. The chance of dying from breast cancer is about 1 in 37. Breast cancer death rates have been going down. This is probably the result of finding the cancer earlier and better treatment. Right now there are more than 3.1 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.

Help us create more survivors!

We will have special rewards for our biggest fundraisers. Go to our team event page and join our team or make a donation by clicking here
