Making Strides of Tampa Presented by Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tampa

COVID-19…QUARANTINE….UNEMPLOYMENT… FUNDRAISING??? YES because CANCER does NOT CARE nor does it STOP without your help!!

Funding for cancer research is likely to be reduced 50% in 2020 -- our lowest investment this century if the current trends continue. The pause of spring & summer fundraising has resulted in a devastating drop in funds available for research and other programs. In just a few short months we have seen research all but halt as labs and academic institutions have had to close. This scares the hell out of me! Women (and some men) are fighting breast cancer ALONE and with limited resources for treatment and support. But the American Cancer Society’s & Making Strides Against Breast Cancer missions continue.

TeamBEST (shortened name) is registered and although the walk will be VIRTUAL, the FUNDRAISING is NOT.  I believe with all my heart that your incredible amazing generosity will again help to save lives, while creating AWARENESS about breast cancer!

Last year through Making Strides donations:

*  $69M was invested in breast cancer specific research; 168 grants

*  3.2 million for education and outreach interventions in under-resourced communities through CHANGE grants to improve screening rates

*  Responded to more than 1.4 million calls and live chats

Please reach for your credit card, wallet or checkbook and donate to this year's 2020 Making Strides walk. I am CELEBRATING 13+ years of survival and am totally lucky and blessed, which is why I give my heart to fundraising for this effort.  PLEASE GIVE WHAT YOU CAN. Remember to BE SAFE and BE KIND to one another.

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.
