Why I am Making Strides

Hey friends! This is normally such a busy time of the year for me, but this year I am making time to join my friend Laura Laterza's team and participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk at Busse Woods in October.

I am walking for Betsy Krause, who just finished her last treatment in mid February for her 3 bout of Breast Cancer, but also for ALL the cancer SURVIVORS in my life! This includes my 3 Day Crew survivors and too many friends who have been diagnosed and came through like the warriors they are. I am walking especially for those I have lost their battle to this ugly disease, especially Steph Lesiecki, who will forever hold a special place in my heart!

So now is the time I ask you not to support me, but to support the survivors in YOUR life! Make it personal, make a donation for them or in memory of the loved ones you have lost. And if you have been fortunate enough not to have been personally touched by cancer, then donate so that if the unspeakable happens to you or someone you love, that we have a cure by then.

What do you say? Let's find a cure for cancer in our lifetime!

Why I Support the American Cancer Society

Every day, the American Cancer Society helps people take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer or find it early when it is easiest to treat. They provide free information and services when and where people need it throughout their journey to get well. They are investing in innovative research to find, prevent, and treat breast cancer. 

I have signed up to walk and fundraise for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. I hope you will consider joining Laura’s team and/or making a donation in support of our efforts. 

Together, we WILL make a difference.

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.
