PLEASE JOIN ‘TEAM BUDDY’ IN THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY’S 2011 RELAY FOR LIFE!
Please support Team Buddy’s in the 2011 Relay for Life – an annual event that unites communities to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that takes far too many!
Team Buddy’s will be participating in several Relays throughout the Spring at various South Bay high schools, parks and running tracks. At each Relay, teams of people walk or run to help raise money for this amazing cause. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events that each last up to 24 hours. YOU can help by joining our team and/or by donating. We’ll follow up with more information as we get closer to the events!
Join TEAM BUDDY’S! in the fight against breast cancer and AIDS!
We participated in two fund-raising walks in San Jose in October 2010! The October 17, 2010 Silicon Valley Walk for AIDS and the American Cancer Society’s October 30, 2010 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk.
The Silicon Valley Walk for AIDS is the largest HIV/AIDS fundraiser in the South Bay. This event is produced annually by the Silicon Valley AIDS Leadership Center who is dedicated to leading the fight to halt the spread of HIV/AIDS and enhance the lives of affected persons. The Walk is not just a fundraiser, it’s a way for all members of the community to show their support for those afflicted with HIV/AIDS.
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Please get checked regularly because early detection saves lives! The American Cancer Society states that if all women age 40 and older took advantage of early detection methods – mammography plus clinical breast exam – breast cancer death rates would drop by up to 30 percent. The key to screening is that it be done routinely – once is not enough. The Making Strides walk is a celebration of survivor-ship, an occasion to express hope, and a shared goal to end a disease that threatens the lives of so many people we love.
