Making Strides of Orlando Presented by Lexus of Orlando

Music for Melons

Music for Melons is devoted to raising funds for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer by doing what we do best. Performing. The team's major supporters are filled with local artists in the Orlando Metro area who have opened their wallets and used their talents in support of this wonderful cause.


Music for Melons is a walking team in support of The American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5k. The team was founded by breast cancer survivor, Angelyn Rhode, in 2011. After battling breast cancer in 2010, Angelyn wanted to do something for the community while also raising awareness and supporting future cancer research. What better way to do that than use her talents as a local artist and educator of theatre and music. Music for Melons is comprised of Central Florida artists who use their talents to raise money for the cure. 

Why We Support the American Cancer Society

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.

Put On Your Pink Bra and join us as we Celebrate Life Through the Arts!

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.
