Making Strides of San Diego Presented by WAXIE

Reaching Beyond

This team is made up of past & present Reach to Recovery volunteers, Researchers, and Healthcare Teams and our family and friends that support us as we all play a role in supporting newly diagnosed breast cancer patients. We are a passionate group that believes in the resources and programs that ACS has to offer patients and their families.

 

As Reach to Recovery Volunteers, we are all breast cancer survivors that know the benefit of getting a dose of hope from someone that has "been there done that", as we were all recipients of that Reach to Recovery support.  Reach to Recovery volunteers give support by making sure women have reliable and up to date information to make informed decisions about their treatment options, that the women affected by this cancer know the resources available to them and that we are there with emotional support.

 

The Researchers that are a part of this year's team are Making Strides in the laboratories everyday, because of the money raised and the grants they have received.  Here in San Diego's great Research Facilities, such as Salk, Sanford Burnham, The Scripps Research Institute, San Diego State University and UC San Diego and UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center, where so many advancements are being made in the fight against cancer.  These men and women of science are passionate about their work and they are inspired daily by the patients, by the caregivers and the healthcare teams that work to battle the disease.

 

Our Healthcare partners on this team come from many of the finest healthcare sytems in San Diego and are leaders in the nation in the fight against cancer. These team members are touched by the lives of a cancer patient daily. They devote their lives to helping others.  They know and share the fear, pain, joys and sorrows of each patient and their caregivers.  They walk the path of cancer everyday with many and they walk with hope in their hearts, knowledge, expertise and dedication in their skills.  

 

So this year when I say we are a team that is Reaching Beyond, I truly mean that we are  many who have come together daily and we inspire each other and are inspired by you! 

Come walk with us!  We are here for you!

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.
