Making Strides of the Bronx

Erika Roman Memorial Foundation


The Erika Roman Memorial Volunteer Group mission is to raise awareness amongst the children of our communities.  To empower children who have suffered from child abuse of all sorts and/or the growing epidemic of Cancer, and to solicit funding to support those programs that enrich their lives.


As a foster child, Erika Roman understood that being a role model to children in foster care, and mentoring them, would be crucial for their emotional and educational development.  Erika's dream was fulfilled, and through her legacy the Foundation will support those programs that provide a nurturing environment to children in foster care in order to inspire them to achieve their goals - "to live their own dream".


Vivian Rivera took on the role of Vice president and embraced our mission as if she had known Erika personally.  Vivian had been diagnosed with cancer shortly after assuming this very time consuming and demanding role.   As a team we raised funds to help with the medical economic struggle and have vowed to continue supporting those battling cancer.


Funding will be solicited by hosting events that may include concerts, award galas, and inspirational speeches given by guest speakers or Board Members.  These funds will then be distributed to the charities which best embodies Erika Roman's passion for excellence in foster care services & Vivian Rivera’s passion & determination to help find a cure for Cancer.


We anticipate on evolving into a vital foundation garnering success as one of the lead foundations in raising awareness and funds, facilitating and conveying to children the quality of life they so richly deserve through mentoring programs.

Any donation amount helps save lives from 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.
