Jerry's Kids

Why We are Making Strides

In 2006 I created team "Jerry's Kids" in memory of my father, Jerry, who passed away on August 9 of the same year after a diagnosis of colorectal cancer just 2 months pior. Although Dad did not have breast cancer, myheartwent out to all victims of this disease. The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk has been myway of keeping his memory alive and myfight against this disease continues. With benefits like this, one day we will find a cure. Please join myfamily in our 12th year as team "Jerry's Kids" and Stand Up to Cancer!!!

My team has grown to over 25 walkers through the years and we want you to join us! Walk not only in memory of your lost loved ones, but also walk to honor those who have won their battle, or continue their fight. All of us have been touched by this disease, all of us have someone to fight for!

If you choose not to walk, please make a donation now. Even $5 adds up and makes a difference. If you don't care to sign up or donate online, please contact me and we can make other arrangements (jkuzmicz@saintmarys.edu).

Our dad meant the world to us, and every October we are touched by all of the friends and family that support us. Our team started with just a handful of supporters and over the years we have raised over $10,000!! We thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for any support you can give team "Jerry's Kids".

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.
