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. It's the 19th ANNIVERSARY OF OUR RACE FOR THE CURE.
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 2012 the Komen Northwest Louisiana Affiliate was able to fund $280,000 for education, screening and treatment services in Caddo, Bossier, Red River, Natchitoches, Bienville, Claiborne, Webster, Desoto, and Sabine, and Wynn Parishes. This year we’re aiming even higher! If every Race participant raised an average of $100 over the registration fee, the Komen Northwest Louisiana Affiliate would raise an additional $800,000. Together, we can save lives!
Team Fundraising: Help your team set an ambitious fundraising goal and encourage them to set an individual goal to assist in reaching the team goal. Click here for the participant fundraising tracking form.
Individual Fundraising: When registering online, your personal webpage is automatically created. Your customizable webpage makes fundraising easy! Log on to set a personal fundraising goal, and begin inviting friends, family, co-workers, and colleagues to make a donation in your name. Let them know what you are doing in the fight against breast cancer and encourage them to make a donation on your behalf. Use this form to mail your donations into the affiliate and we will upload them to your participant page for you. 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!
