Chasing a Cure in Memory of Colleen

Welcome to the Team Page for "Chasing a Cure in Memory of Colleen." Colleen Allen was called to heaven on March 15th of this year, after a courageous battle with breast cancer. It was just 10 days shy of her 30th birthday. Her husband Ted and two-year old son Russ meant the world to her. Russ growing up without his mom and Ted not having his amazing wife around is so unfair. There's nothing we can do to bring her back. But we can help fund research so one day, family members and friends won't have to suffer such a heartbreaking loss as it was to lose Colleen. Whether you're able to donate a few bucks, share this page, come out and walk with us at Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Charlotte or just offer encouragement - thank you! 

Where does your donation go? 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 fundraising is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.

How We Support the American Cancer Society

Every day, the American Cancer Society helps people take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer or find it early when it is easiest to treat. 

We have signed up to walk and fundraise for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. I hope you will consider joining our team and/or making a donation in support of our efforts. 

Together, we can make a difference.

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.
