How does a 5K Race make a huge impact on the global movement to end breast cancer forever? Through the fundraising efforts of every participant.
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 2013 the Komen Mid-Michigan Affiliate was able to fund more than $280,000 for education, screening and survivorship services in Ingham, Eaton, Clinton, Jackson, Livingston, Shiawassee, and Washtenaw counties. This year we’re aiming even higher!
Just Imagine the IMPACT - If every Race participant raises just $100 in addition to their registration fee, we would bring in $500,000 to support local screening, treatment and educational programs in our community, and an additional $175,000 for national breast cancer research! Together, we can save lives!
Why are we running? To save lives and end breast cancer forever. Learn more about the needs right here in Mid-Michigan: Click here to read the 2012 Community Profile.
Fundraising is easy with online fundraising tools! When you registered for the Race you automatically received your own fundraising website which can be personalized. Start by encouraging everyone you know to visit your site, see what you are doing in the fight against breast cancer and make a donation on your behalf. Up to 75 percent of net proceeds generated by the Affiliate stays right here in the local community! The remaining income goes to the national Susan G. Komen for the Cure Grants Program to fund research.
Every dollar makes an impact – thank you for everything you do!
