The Puget Sound Affiliate of Susan G. Komen For The Cure is one of 120 affiliates nationwide working towards finding a cure for cancer, helping detect breast cancer, and supporting those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Between fund raisers, community events, and the annual Komen Race for the Cure, you have plenty of opportunities to get involved and make a difference in the fight against breast cancer.
There are plenty of opportunities to get involved in the Susan G. Komen For The Cure foundation. Whether you race, form a team, donate, volunteer to help teams, or advertise the cause, you can help fight breast cancer. There are multiple ways to donate: online, sending a check to the address on the website, or calling in your credit card information. You can create your own page as part of Personal Fundraising, or contribute to a friend, family member or co-worker’s page. Creating a personal fundraising page on the Susan G. Komen For The Cure is easy. First, you will select the fund type (Honorary, Memorial, or Personal). Next, create the Fund Name and tell the story as to whom you are remembering, honoring, or why you are fighting breast cancer. Upload an image, set your fundraising goals and fund description, and then send the link to everyone you know and spread the word about what Susan G. Komen For The Cure is doing, and what you are doing, to fight breast cancer.
A large part of what makes the Komen Race for the Cure so effective is the camaraderie and the good-natured competitiveness between teams. Become a Team Captain and form your own team, or join an existing team, and see which team can raise the most funds! There are corporate teams as well as family and neighborhood teams which race. Wear a funky costume or create your own team shirt – anything that pulls you together as a team and shows your support of those who have been diagnosed, battled or lost their lives to breast cancer.
