Making Strides of Nebraska

Fuel the Cure

Everyone is at risk of inhaling toxic chemicals used for octane in gasoline. These carcinogens make up 25% of a gallon of gas. You are exposed at the pump, from vehicle exhaust, and when these chemicals are released as greenhouse gases (GHG). The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classifies BTEX chemicals as toxic air pollutants known to cause cancer, adverse reproductive effects, and other health issues.

Ethanol is a natural, plant-based octane booster used to displace some of these chemicals which have been linked to cancer (including breast cancer), heart disease, and respiratory issues. Overall, according to  Harvard and Tufts universities, ethanol reduces GHG by nearly 50%. 

Since Nebraska is the No. 2 producer of ethanol, it's available across the state. To learn more about the right ethanol blend for your vehicle and to find ethanol locations near you, visit fueledbynebraska.com. During October, when you fill up with higher blends of ethanol—from E15 to E85— not only will you be reducing your cancer risk by choosing healthier fuel, but participating fuel retailers will donate 3 per gallon to breast cancer research at the Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center in Omaha. 

Not only are you making healthier choices for everyone by using ethanol, by participating in Fuel the Cure, you’re also supporting life changing research and services. Learn more at fueledbynebraska.com/pink.

How Fundraising Impacts Your Community

Cancer hits far too close to home, so the funds you raise will help do the same. Through services and resources like free rides to chemo, free places to stay near hospitals, and a live 24/7 helpline, cancer patients and their families will feel the love. Here’s how recent money raised has been put to incredible uses.

As of January 2022, we have invested $71 M for potentially lifesaving breast cancer specific research grants.

We have received over 250,000 calls and chats from patients and caregivers seeking support in 2021

Cancer patients benefited from ACS transportation support through our Road TO Recovery program and transportation grants in 2021, with nearly 229,000 rides provided.

Many thanks to our generous sponsors for fueling the American Cancer Society's fight against 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.
