Fundraise


 






Q: Does the Komen Race for the Cure require fundraising?
In order to expand outreach to the community and to continue to provide all life-saving services, it is necessary to fundraise over and above the $25 registration fee.  We encourage all participants to Imagine the IMPACT - If every Race participant raises just $100 in addition to their registration fee, we would bring in an additional $500,000 to support additional local screening, treatment and educational programs in our community!  Raising money helps ensure the following programs are available:

•    Mammograms for uninsured/underinsured women and men
•    Lymphedema treatment for breast cancer survivors
•    Breast cancer navigation to help women with employment, insurance or finances
•    Financial assistance so that breast cancer survivors may continue treatment
•    Culturally diverse breast cancer education and wellness programs
•    Hospice assistance

Power of 10 Challenge

 "$25 brings us to the start line--The Power of 10 Challenge brings us closer to the Cure"

 


How the Power of 10 Challenge Works


• It's simple; if each participant asks 10 people to donate at least $10 each, each Race participant will raise $100 above the $25 entry fee.

•  This year we will encourage all Race participants to rise to the challenge of raising additional funds over and above the $25 entry fee.


Steps to raise $100:

• Show your commitment and donate to yourself
• Ask spouse/parent/family members to match your donation
• Ask friends/co-workers
• Ask your boss for a company contribution

You don’t need to be a fundraising expert to be successful at it – you just need the desire to stand up to breast cancer and make a difference.  Thanks to people like you, in 2011/2012 the Komen Central Valley Affiliate was able to fund $356,000 for education, screening and treatment services in Fresno County.  This year we’re aiming even higher!  If every Race participant raised an average of $100 over the registration fee, the Komen Central Valley Affiliate would raise an additional $70,000.  Together, we can save lives!
