Making Strides of Albany

Cherrie's Team Going Pink For a Cure

Cherrie's Team Going Pink for a Cure

We are a team of family and friends.

After loosing both my mother in 2011 and sister in 2012 of breast cancer a friend suggested I walk in the Making Strides event in Albany. This was the beginning of our team.

It has become a yearly event. This year is our 8th year as a team. We gather at my house and together we make the journey to Albany. We have walked on cold days and with snow at the start of our walk but somehow the sun always manages to come out and shine on us.

The youngest members of the team are my granddaughters Addison and Emma, and our newest addition my grandson Aiden, their cousin Anna and their friends Janelle and Jackson. They have started with being pushed in strollers to walking the 3 miles together with lots of laughter. The walk is for their futures as well.

On our celebration of 5 years of walking, our team member Nancy and her husband took their mini bus with most of our team members to Albany. Ben set up for a great tailgate gathering after we finished the walk. It was a great day. I am so fortunate to have such great family and friends to accompany me on this journey every year and to help raise money.

With all the support of my family, friends and your donations we walk for the prevention of breast cancer, help those diagnosed with it and a cure for the future.

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.
