Making Strides of Point Pleasant Beach

Besties For Breasties

Besties is Making a Difference

 

Greetings Besties!  It's that time of year again where we join together to make a difference in the fight against Breast Cancer.  Last year we placed in the top 10% of teams in fund raising, and this year our goal is to double that!  I know we can do this!  We are strong, we are invincible, we are women!  (Well, most of us - though we do appreciate the few, brave men that join us).  

 

Lately it seems that almost everyone has been touched by breast cancer in some way, and the numbers are growing.  What used to be considered a disease impacting the elderly, it is now striking young women, many considered to young to even need a mammogram, in record numbers. 

 

Please do not wait until Breast Cancer becomes a personal issue for you or your loved one to participate.  The donations our team raises will enable investment in groundbreaking breast cancer research, free information and services for women diagnosed with the disease, and access to mammograms for women who need them. 

 

Saving lives from breast cancer starts one team, one walker, and one dollar at a time. We know that the American Cancer Society is the leader in the fight to end breast cancer. We know that supporting them will ensure that if you need someone to talk to anytime of the day or night, they’ll be there. If your friend is losing her hair from chemo, your mother needs a ride to treatment, or a loved one needs a place to stay when treatment is far from home, they will be there to help.

Please join us in the walk for a world without breast cancer!

Any donation amount helps save lives from 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.
