Making Strides of Long Island

Team Saban

Some of you may remember my family,  "Team Saban" walks at Jones beach in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walkathon every fall. Our team slogan is BDS...still making a difference. We walk in memory of my mom Barbara Dawn Saban and with every dollar we raise BDS continues to make a difference. 

This year I was reminded just how big of a difference she continues to make:

Every year we start our fundraising with a kickoff breakfast held at Crest Hollow Country Club. There's always an inspirational speaker and teams share fundraising ideas. 

This year the speaker was the team leader of "Stacey's Warriors" and she shared her story of surviving breast cancer. 

She spoke about when she was first diagnosed. All she could think about was living to see her two young sons grow up to be men. She spoke about how her doctor at Sloan Kettering was involved in cutting edge research which was supported by our fundraising efforts. There wasn't a dry eye in the house when she shared that one of her sons is now doing his oncology internship at Sloan Kettering. 

I, however, started crying way earlier than anyone else in the room...

As she told her story I realized her doctor was the same doctor my mom had gone to many years before. The doctor where she went to participate  in clinical trials that helped move cancer research forward. The same research that helps save lives everyday, maybe even Stacey's life. 

That research is funded by The American Cancer Society and events like the Making Strides Walkathon.

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.
