Making Strides of Gainesville

Focus on Family

This cause is near and dear to so many of us, as cancer has in some way, touched the lives of those we love leaving behind an indelible impression on all of us. We all acknowledge and understand the catastrophic effects cancer can have in and on our lives. 

Participation in Strides Against Cancer activities became an integral part of our family support system after the many experiences with various forms of cancer i.e., breast, colon, lung, pancreas, brain, and others.  This journey started out as personal testimonies with individual walks in Strides Against Cancer.  Since then, the journey has developed into a mission to do more.  A mission to engage our family, friends and acquaintances to work with us to build a team that would endeavor to actively participate in activities to help raise money for cancer awareness FOCUS on FAMILY embodies that mission. 

Over the years, the way we have participated in Strides has evolved. While initially, individual donations were our goal, in more recent years, we have recognized the importance of engagement and have broadened our goals to include fund raising efforts to solicit the support of our family, friends, and acquaintances.  

So, we solicit your moral and financial support in our fight against cancer.  Come join our Focus on Family team as we walk to help raise funds to find a cure.

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.
