Why We Walk

Almost everyone has been touched by breast cancer in some way, whether they have been diagnosed with it or they have a loved one who has been diagnosed with it. Our team has decided to make a difference by walking and collecting donations to help end the fight against breast cancer.

 

The money this team collects will help more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S., including women and men who are still being treated and those who have completed treatment, celebrate another birthday!

 

Our team has been touched by breast cancer a few years ago. Our Auntie Barb was diagnosed on May 8, 2007 with breast cancer. It was devastating news and we didn’t think it would happen to one of our family members, but she was tough and fought through the battle to end her breast cancer. At times it was hard and she may have wanted to give up but with the support of her family and friends behind her she was able to get through her treatments. When she stated her chemo she started to lose her hair so my cousin Heather picked out a bright lime green hat for her to wear. Auntie Barb is without a doubt a tough fighter because in 2011 she lost her mother to pancreatic cancer and in 2013 she lost her husband to lung cancer, but she remained strong. As of today she is still breast cancer free and celebrating many birthdays with her daughter Staci and son-in-law Rob, son Nick and daughter-in-law Karen and her grandchildren Cameron and Zoey.

 

You Too Can Make A Difference

You can personally help by donating any amount of money, whether it is 5 dollars or 50 dollars, any amount will help to end the fight. The Making Strides team is doing their part by helping patients get a car ride to and from treatment, giving them a place to stay while in treatment away from home, and if they need someone to talk to at any time of day. NOW it’s your turn to help those in need by donating any amount or joining our team so we can together end the fight!

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.
