As National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) approaches, we wanted to let you, our amazing supporters, know about various ways you can raise funds to support the fight against breast cancer... Do It Yourself Fundraising!

The first step to creating your fundraiser is coming up with an idea, but no worries, we have made it easy for you! Our DIY fundraising page is set up to help you choose from categories that fit your fundraising style:

  • Workplace fundraiser (have a jeans day or a change drive)
  • Athletic fundraiser (have a neighborhood walk or a PINK football/volleyball game at school)
  • In Honor fundraiser (have a fundraiser in celebration or in memory of a loved one who battled or is battling cancer)
  • Birthday fundraiser (instead of asking for gifts, let your family know you are doing a birthday fundraiser and ask them to donate instead)

Your choice, your impact!
