[ARCHIVED] Councilwoman Waldman Honors Volunteers of Breast Cancer Fundraising

During the November City Council Presentation Ceremony, Councilwoman Judy Waldman offered her gratitude to all the volunteers that assisted in making October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month a success in the City of Homestead.

A breast cancer survivor herself, this is a cause near and dear to Councilwoman Waldman, who is a champion in raising awareness and funds for breast cancer prevention, detection, and treatment. She has participated in countless events to raise funds for the Susan G. Komen Foundation as well as the American Cancer Society’s Homestead Relay for Life, which she has chaired and been closely involved for over ten years.

“It is my life’s goal to continue to educate both men and women to see their doctors for regular checkups or if any unusual symptoms appear. However, it is everyone’s duty to continue to spread the word and to raise public awareness,” said Councilwoman Waldman during the presentation. “It is my honor to thank this team of volunteers who helped raise the funds this past October. Thanks again for everything that you do. We could not do it without you. You’re my heroes.”

On October 5, a fundraising breakfast was served at the Homestead Community Center followed by a live auction that raised nearly $3000 for the local Relay for Life group. Relay for Life is a community fundraising event where teams are organized to run laps around a track to commemorate and honor those who breast cancer has taken and those who are still fighting. The event builds camaraderie and lasting friendships for a worthy cause.

Among those Councilwoman Waldman honored during the presentation were: Michael Hitt, whom she called, “ Our all-around go-to guy,” Jackie Pilkington “a really hard worker and a sweetheart”, Darlene Adams, Lisa Harriet, Nathan Hitt, Adrian McKinley, Yvette Ortiz ( Relay For Life Chairperson), Valerie Proctor, Junior Robain, Carol Silver and Nancy Rodriguez.
A special mention was given to the Sisters Network of Miami, an African-American breast cancer survivor’s organization that creates awareness and raises funds for the cause. Sister Network Miami President, Adrian McClenney, who also received a certificate of appreciation, surprised Councilwoman Waldman when she also presented an honorary certificate acknowledging Councilwoman Waldman’s invaluable dedication to the Breast Cancer Awareness cause.
