Neva's Westport Babes

NEVA'S PASSION

Dear Babes, Friends and Family ~

The American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer was my amazing daughter Neva's passion. Over her nine years of fundraising, Neva side-by-side with her Babes raised over $700,000.00 to fund research and development for life sustaining and saving drugs that enabled her to keep going and continue to help the scores of women and men who are battling this horrific disease. These drugs gave Neva the opportunity to have a good quality of life for nine years, allowing her to “run around like a crazy Mom” (in her own words) driving Julia and Jacob to all their activities, enjoying trips and vacations, celebrating birthdays and holidays, and being there for Seth, her family and friends. 

As we do every year in October, Neva's Westport Babes will come out in full force joiningMaking Strides survivors, caregivers and supporters on the shores of beautiful Sherwood Island State Park. The date this year is Sunday, October 20th, 2019.

Because of our love for Neva and Neva's Westport Babes fundraising commitment, Neva remained the nation's #1 Pacesetter & #1 National Fundraiser in 2018. We raised an unbelievable $108,000.00 plus. In addition, Neva's Westport Babes topped the country's list of the Top 10 highest fundraising teams coming in  #7 nationally by raising a whopping $108,170.00. We even raised $6,302.00 over our goal of $101,868.00 (which signified Neva's birthday month, date, year).

This year Neva would have been celebrating her 51st birthday on October 18th, 2019 (or 10/18/2019). In Neva's honor and memory Neva's Westport Babes have set a goal of $101,819.00. Neva touched so many lives with her love, caring, warmth, inspiration and determination. 

Let's celebrate our Neva by working together to raise the big bucks. If I close my eyes I can see her smiling her beautiful smile. Please join our team, donate and fundraise as you have for many year. With all of us working together, I know we can do it!!!

With much love and wishes for good health,  Ricki

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.
