Making Strides of Gainesville

Team Sambo

 

April 11, 2019 was the day we got the phone call that no one wants to hear... that 6 letter word flipped our world upside down faster than a blink of an eye. My big sister, the one who protects me, gives me strength, answers every question I have had my whole life... has cancer?! How is this possible? To me she was untouchable. I wanted to have it in place of her, I was angry, I was sad, I didn't know what to do and just wanted to wake up from this nightmare. Then Sami texted me.. the same night that she was diagnosed and says "I want to do this walk, have a huge team, and raise so much more money for research". Well sister, I'm going to make that happen. Sami donates more of her time than I can count. She is a pharmacist and every Monday night she volunteers at a free clinic to help people with medicines. She participates in every walk, run, fundraiser possible and now it is time for us to step up for her team... in her name. I am ready to kick butt along side my sister and we are so thankful you want to be a part of it as well. 

Welcome to our Team:

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.
