My Fundraising Progress: $10
Welcome to Valentina Lynn's Breast Cancer Crusader Page
My name is Valentina Lynn and this is my second year with the Believe Walk. I was 6 weeks old when I did my first 5k...now I am 1 year old! If it wasn't for breast cancer I would have been able to meet my Grandma Debbie and my Great Granny. I would have been able to have a 4 generation picture taken with these strong women like my mom did when she was a baby. So now it will be a mission my mommy and I start early to fight the breast cancer fight and the Believe Walk is the perfect place to start. This year I am also walking in honor of my Uncle who is just starting his battle. Please support me in my walk...even if it will be in a stroller for the next couple years!
Look for my mommy and I in matching pink tutus!!!
What is Stater Bros. Charities & Inland Women Fighting Cancer 2011 Believe Walk?
The “Believe Walk” brings a community together with a purpose; to support cancer survivors, cancer patients and their families in the Inland Empire. Stater Bros. Charities & Inland Women Fighting Cancer started the Believe Walk with a simple vision, to create an event that honored cancer survivors and brought support to those who were still on their journey.
The “BELIEVE WALK” would bring together a community with the intent to raise critical funds that would directly impact support and services provided to cancer patients and their families in Inland Empire. It started with the vision that each dollar raised through Stater Bros. Charities & Inland Women Fighting Cancer's Believe Walk would stay in the Inland Empire and benefit local cancer centers, support programs and enhance services that support cancer patients. Through the commitment and vision of Jack Brown, Chairman & CEO of Stater Bros. Markets and Event Chairs and "Inland Women Fighting Cancer" Nancy Varner, Cathy Stockton and Annie Sellas all whom are cancer survivors; the first Believe Walk emerged from this unique partnership in 2008. The Believe Walk was immediately embraced by the Redlands Community and it has grown each year and has expanded from the Inland Empire community to Southern California.
The “Believe Walk” has grown from 1500 participants the first year to over 8,000 in 2010. Each year has seen an increase of participation and fundraising efforts by this community. The commitment of the community to fundraise has made it possible for Stater Bros. Charities and Inland Women Fighting Cancer to make contributions to the Loma Linda Cancer Resource Center, St. Bernardine Medical Center “Imaging Center” and Michelle’s Place. These are services that have been impacted by the generosity of the City of Redlands, our Sponsors and the community and this commitment has enhanced the support and care for so many cancer patients and their families here in the Inland Empire.
Why am I walking/running/strolling in the 5k or 10k at the 2011 Believe Walk?
Half of all men and one-third of all women in the US will develop cancer during their lifetimes, and today about 11 million people alive in the United States have had some type of cancer. Some of these people are cancer-free; others still have the disease. We in the Inland Empire, where the population is larger than that of 24 states, deserve the best in cancer care. Stater Bros. Charities & Inland Women Fighting Cancer has made a commitment that each dollar raised in the Inland Empire through the 2011 Believe Walk will stay in the Inland Empire. That is why I have joined the efforts of thousands in my community to support the Stater Bros. Charities & Inland Women Fighting Cancer’s 2011 Believe Walk!
