Meet Yamile Rivera,  National Making Strides Volunteer Co-Lead


I have been an American Cancer Society volunteer for more than 25 years. I first started volunteering with my children when they were in elementary school and continued throughout my work career as a Relay For Life Team Captain, Making Strides Team Leader, Area Lead, Luminaria Lead, Recognition Lead, then moved up to a Regional Lead Volunteer and now on the National Volunteer Leadership Team.


I have been invited to multiple trainings as both an attendee and a facilitator with the American Cancer Society and I have enjoyed learning and sharing those learnings with my fellow volunteers. I look forward to making a huge difference in our Strides events moving forward!

Lisa Beck, National Making Strides Volunteer Co-Lead

I recently retired from General Motors (Nov 1 2023) after 35 years. Most recently I served as CFO-Global Product Development – Trucks & SUVs. 15 years ago, a co-worker asked me to join/co-lead the GM Women in Finance team and attend the Detroit MSABC Walk. I was so incredibly inspired by the event, the survivors and hope in air that I decided that day I would stay involved. It has been so rewarding to grow the team/walkers, spread awareness and fundraise for such an important cause. 

Over the years, several of my family members and friends have battled or are still battling this disease, so this is important to me, and I hope our efforts lead to a cure.  I fight for my two daughters, my sister, and all women (and men) in our lives. I look forward to staying involved with ACS and fundraising post-retirement with the GM Women in Finance team.
