While there's no Ribbon Run event this year, we hope you will support the Run The Greenway event on May 1st!

Time is running out to register for Run The Greenway and guarantee your race shirt. Every registration includes a Run the Greenway race shirt and a fundraising page where runners can raise funds for the Step Sisters. The cutoff date to ensure participants will receive a race shirt is April 1st. After this point, the race shirt is not guaranteed.

The Step Sisters organization has registered a growing team of runners and fundraisers and we are encouraging our members and partners to join our team of supporters as 100% of funds raised will go directly to Step Sisters. In addition, Dulles Greenway will donate $5,000, $2,500, and $1,000 to participating charities and individuals who raise the largest amount of money (hopefully Step Sisters!). The toll road will also donate $1,000 to select participating charities on behalf of race winners.

1,192 touchpoints.

Looking back at 2020, we are proud of what this number represents. Patient confidentiality prevents us from tracking individuals we assist. But we do track each service provided to local breast cancer patients and measure those in touchpoints.

A touchpoint might be a ride to the hospital, or a Chemo Care Bag for a patient just starting chemotherapy. Or it might be a utility payment to keep the lights on when finances during treatment are tight.

Like many organizations, our fundraising efforts were drastically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The cancellation of our largest annual fundraiser, the Step Sisters’ Ribbon Run meant that we had to rely more heavily on other streams of income.

Early in the year, we gratefully received funds from the Nation’s Newswomen at the DC NewsBash event. In addition, many businesses, organizations and individuals chose to support us through their fundraising and collection efforts. Every bit has helped.

While fundraising was more challenging in 2020, we also found that our services were more in demand, especially in the area of Crisis Funding. Since the start of COVID-19, we have seen a near doubling in requests for housing, utility and food assistance for those experiencing financial difficulties during breast cancer treatment.

Despite the challenging year, we are proud of what we have accomplished, and look forward with optimism that we will continue to be able to support local patients, however we can, whatever their need may be.

We rarely meet the patients we serve, so we love hearing from them! Special thanks to Thrive Causemetics for helping this patient feel beautiful during her treatment.

In addition to the Thrive Causemetics, our Chemo Care Bags include a variety of helpful items for patients such as: lip balm, mints, fuzzy socks, tissues, hot/cold pack and more.

In 2020, our Crisis Fund spending nearly doubled, totaling $42,280.37.

Designed to meet critical needs in the areas of housing, utilities and food stability, the Step Sisters' Crisis Fund provides support to patients experiencing a financial emergency during treatment. We anticipate this increased need to continue in 2021.

Studies show that personal and financial difficulties can cause breast cancer patients to delay or even stop their treatment. Our organization's goal is to not only increase a patient’s quality of life, but also decrease her obstacles to treatment.

CAN YOU HELP? No donation amount is too small. And, you can establish a monthly automatic recurring donation.

Financial worries and unemployment, fears of getting Coronavirus while your immunity is compromised due to treatment, concerns about what's ahead...a breast cancer patient today has so much to deal with in addition to battling this disease. The Step Sisters remind you that you are not alone —we are in this together.

Covid-19 has increased the need for our services and support for breast cancer patients in our area, while impacting our ability to conduct several of our fundraising initiatives. Now, more than ever, your donations are needed. Thank you!
