Making Strides of Long Island

Jodi's Journey

Why We are Making Strides

Hi, my name is Josh Koelsch. This is the sixth year that I will be walking at Jones Beach with the American Cancer Society. The reason I am walking is because when I was 10 years old my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was not only a very hard time for me, but my whole family. By participating in this walk I hope tonot only help fund breast cancer research, but spread awareness and make sure we can do everything possible to help.


After completing the walk in October, I know that I will feel that I have made a difference and put a smile on people's faces. I hope that all men and women who are suffering will get the medicine they need or a cure is found in my lifetime.
Please help me raise money to find a cure for this deadly disease.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and donate today



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.

Join us and together we will walk for a world without 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.
