Making Strides of Chicago

Team Peggy Geist

Never, ever, ever give up.

 

Our aunt always told us this throughout various points in our lives.  She said you can never, ever give up on anything important to you.  Our aunt took her own advice when she battled breast cancer, twice.  Even though she lost her life to cancer, she never lost her dignity or hope.  She was such an inspiration to those around her and her memory continues to live on.  The walk is not only a reminder to us that cancer is still prevalent among men and women, but it also allows us to remember those we have lost to cancer. 

Today, there is more hope than ever for people facing breast cancer. However, there is much work to be done to find promising new treatments, increase awareness about the importance of mammograms, help all women get access to screenings and care, and connect those impacted by the disease with the information, day-to-day help, and emotional support they need to wage their battle against breast cancer. 
 
 We believe that hope for a world without breast cancer starts with me. That's why we're walking in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. Not only is this our opportunity to join our community to fight back against breast cancer, it is a way to inspire hope by raising funds and awareness to help those facing the disease and save more lives.

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.
