Making Strides of Greater Charlotte

Coldwell Banker Realty-Arboretum

My reason for walking in the Making Strides event is very personal. This marks the 17th anniversary that I lost my better half. Some might think I am speaking of my husband. I'm speaking of someone that goes back to birth...my Twin Sister. August 12, 2005 marks the very darkest day of my life. Losing Leigh was losing a part of my soul. I fund raise and walk in hopes that maybe...just maybe...one day others won't experience the deep pain of what I and so many others have gone through. Her smile could light up a room...her green eyes danced their very own dance...her laugh was felt as a gift from heaven...her heart was an inspiration to many.

I hope you will join me on October 30th and walk or consider a donation to honor Leigh and the countless others that have either lost their battle or are currently battling this horrific cancer.

Thanks from the bottom of my heart!

How Fundraising Impacts Your Community

Cancer hits far too close to home, so the funds you raise will help do the same. Through services and resources like free rides to chemo, free places to stay near hospitals, and a live 24/7 helpline, cancer patients and their families will feel the love. Here’s how recent money raised has been put to incredible uses.

As of January 2022, we have invested $71 M for potentially lifesaving breast cancer specific research grants.

We have received over 250,000 calls and chats from patients and caregivers seeking support in 2021

Cancer patients benefited from ACS transportation support through our Road TO Recovery program and transportation grants in 2021, with nearly 229,000 rides provided.

Our Sponsors

Many thanks to our generous sponsors for fueling the American Cancer Society's fight against breast cancer.

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.
