Rehm, Bennett and Moore recently organized a team of walkers and fundraisers for the Lincoln, Neb., American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk.
According to the Making Strides website, the firm’s team, “Big or small, we save ’em all at Rehm, Bennett & Moore” raised $1,215. And the team also got a mention before the walk on the creativity of the team name. Participants had the choice of walking a 1- or 3-mile (5K) course this year on a beautiful fall day around Holmes Lake.
Although team members had various personal motivations for participating, they also experienced the power of seeing thousands of people with the same goal in mind – finding a cure for breast cancer.
“Cancer is something my family has been affected by firsthand. We have seen the struggles that family members have had to go through with this horrible disease. I am thankful for organizations like Making Strides to provide opportunities to get involved in raising money for the fight for the cure. I was amazed by the amount of people who attended the walk and am grateful for all that the organization does to both bring awareness and provide funding for everyone affected by cancer,” said Legal Assistant Lisa Heisinger who served as a one of two Team Captains, along with Administrative Assistant Pam Stachura.
The event held in Lincoln included 239 teams and 1,819 people. Over $206,800 was raised, according to the Making Strides website.
