Making Strides of Greater Portland

Lisa's Legacy

Thank you for taking time to check out our Making Strides page.

 On September 11 2005, our friend Lisa Pedro lost her hard fought battle against breast cancer.  In the course of her cancer journey, Lisa was passionate about sharing her experience in an effort to inform and educate others about the disease, early detection and treatment options. 

One month after her passing, some of Lisa's family and friends formed a team to walk in the ACS Making Strides event to honor her memory and help raise funds to find a cure for this insidious disease that has affected too many of our friends, family and colleagues.


We all walk because we've been affected by breast cancer in some way, and because the Making Strides event gives us the power to make a difference and fight back. This is our opportunity to honor breast cancer survivors, remember people we have lost, and help raise funds for groundbreaking research as well as information and services for people fighting breast cancer.

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


Together, we can make strides to end breast cancer!

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.
