Making Strides of Greater Charlotte

Primax Pink Warriors

This is our 12th year participating with the American Cancer Society and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Our team started off with 12 walkers (when we walked with Suntrust in 2007) and last year our team had 350 walkers. Can we beat that this year? I hope so! We started off as a small group of co-workers walking in honor of my Mom who lost her third battle with breast cancer. Now we are a team committed to raising awareness for early detection, raising funds to support the programs offered by the American Cancer Society, and most importantly helping fund research to help find a cure for breast cancer. Over the past eleven years over 2700 Primax Pink Warrior tee shirts have been worn and we have raised over $630,000. This is going to be a great year for the Primax Pink Warriors AND the American Cancer Society!

 

Did you know that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer? Did you know that one out of two women diagnosed with breast cancer will reach out to the American Cancer Society for help, support, and information? I have been the team leader of the Primax Pink Warriors since 2008 and I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011. I went from raising money for the programs ACS offers - to attending them. I went from building a team of people to walk with the Primax Pink Warriors - to having a team of people rally around me during 6 surgeries and chemotherapy. I am now a 8 year survivor and I am passionate about early detection, self exams, and annual screenings. This is what saved my life. If you are interested in reading my personal story you can read it by clicking my name on the team roster.

 

Each year we honor our breast cancer fighters and survivors on our team. We call them our Warrior Princesses. We rally around them as they fight their battle and celebrate with them as they reach another birthday. Please keep all of our Princesses in your thoughts and prayers as we build the team.

 

I am grateful to be the leader of such a great group of walkers, fundraisers, and Warrior Princesses each year. This year the walk is on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at AvidXchange Music Factory, 1000 NC Music Factory Blvd., Charlotte, NC 28206 (more details to follow) and we would love for you to join our team, donate to our team, help us recruit more walkers, or all three.

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.
