Making Strides of Boston

Walking with Lindy for Life

Why We are Making Strides

Welcome to our Team Page! Almost everyone has been touched by breast cancer in some way, so we've decided to make a difference by walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event.

Today 1 of every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to the American Cancer Society for help and support. 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. Our donations will help more than 2.9 million breast cancer survivors celebrate another birthday this year!

Those are the ACS's words and I think they tell it well. Now I'll give you the story of "my team". I have been doing the Making Strides walk since it's inception 25 years ago. About 6-8 years into it I was asked to give our team a name. I wasn't clever enough to come up with some of the really cool names that I see at the walk today but Melissa Etheridge had just come out with a song titled "I Run For Life" and I loved the words. I decided to encorporate the spirit of that song and came up with "Walking With Lindy For Life". My team is ever changing, some years we've had nearly 40 participants and other years, especially the first couple of years, we had but a handful. My nephew Jay has walked with me every year and I trust if I couldn't do the walk he would put Barney (his Yorkie ~ our mascot) in my lap and push me in a wheelchair. If you feel so inclined to do this walk and never have please consider joining team "Walking With Lindy For Life".


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.
