For the third year in a row, Ben Franklin is helping us save lives from breast cancer. Because for every $500 you raise online between October 1 and October 5, an additional $100 will be donated to your personal fundraising account thanks, in part, to our generous sponsor Chiquita.*

To put that in context, $500 could provide a cancer patient and their caregiver with five nights of free lodging at an American Cancer Society Hope Lodge® community when treatment is far from home. And the $100 additional contribution could help provide a breast cancer patient with one-on-one peer support from a breast cancer survivor through the Reach To Recovery® program. And that's in addition to the impact of the innovative research funded through the money you raise.

Make sure your teammates get Ben on board, too. Because the more Benjamins we have, the better. To make sure you're doing everything you can to raise as much money as possible, download our fundraising tips now.

Good luck, thank you, and go get Ben on board.

Welcome to our Team Page. We've formed a team because this cause is important to us. We want to help. And walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is the best way we can do that. We all have different reasons for participating but we share a determination to help save lives from breast cancer.

There are so many ways that the money our team raises helps. It’s helping fund innovative research. It's providing free information for people dealing with the disease. It’s providing rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.

How We Support the American Cancer Society

Of course we walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. And we solicit donations from family, friends, and other supporters. But we also schedule fundraisers in lead-up to the big event. Bake-sales, car washes, and countless other types of events. And we promote those on social media, through Facebook and Twitter, by word of mouth, and through flyers at work and around the neighborhood. The success of fundraising events depends on two things - hard work and getting the word out. And we're out to do both. Keep an eye out for our fundraising events.

Join us. Donate today. Or walk with us.
