The American Cancer Society started Making Strides Against Breast Cancer to unite communities, companies, and individuals with a collective goal to end breast cancer as we know it.
This year’s Strides event is on October 15, 2022 at Choctaw Stadium in Arlington.
You can join our team! Help us raise funds to fight breast cancer while meeting members of our board and getting in a little exercise.
Road To Recovery®
Every day thousands of cancer patients need a ride to treatment, but some may not have a way to get there. The American Cancer Society Road To Recovery program provides transportation to and from treatment for people with cancer who do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves.
Use your passion for politics to help enact laws and policies that will make cancer a top national priority. American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network℠, ACS CAN, volunteers work to make sure our leaders take real steps toward finishing the fight against cancer. As the nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society, ACS CAN holds lawmakers accountable for their words and their actions. As an ACS CAN volunteer you will meet with legislators, plan events, encourage new membership, and help make phone calls. With the help of our volunteers, ACS CAN campaigns have led to 35 states going smoke-free (as well as Washington, DC and Puerto Rico) and increased federal cancer research funding for the National Institutes of Health, as well as many other significant accomplishments.
There are many different ways to get involved with volunteering at YTACS & ACS in Dallas!
