Why We are Participating in Making Strides
First American’s unique workforce composition—almost 70 percent women—makes Women’s Advocacy a natural core cause of the Caring For Our Community program. Women’s Advocacy supports organizations and initiatives that address women’s health, family, and welfare issues. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Breast cancer awareness efforts at First American are focused on increasing volunteer opportunities, prevention awareness initiatives and wellness support to all employees. As part of our annual initiative, First American is participating in American Cancer Society’s Making Strides events nationwide. We are excited to be part of the fight against breast cancer and look forward to some very fun and meaningful events to come. Help us “knock out” breast cancer by participating in a walk or starting a team! Be sure to share your efforts on social media and use the hashtag #FirstAmCares. Your posts may be featured on the @FirstAmPeople Instagram account!

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.
