Darryl Traweek raised more than $100,000 for Susan G. Komen the same way he climbed 20,000 feet to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro - one step at a time.
SET A FUNDRAISING GOAL
Big or small, a fundraising goal gives you and your donors something to strive for.
TELL YOUR STORY
Let everyone know what you are doing and why you are doing it.
MAKE THE FIRST DONATION
Kick off your fundraising by making the first donation to your page.
WHAT TO DO WITH CHECKS
Print the Donation Reply Form and use it to mail in your donations.
Encourage your kids to set up shop outside the house and entice neighbors outside with a refreshing glass of lemonade. It’s a great opportunity to meet new friends and spread the message of breast cancer awareness.
Pink it out by the pool and stay cool this summer. Collect donations at the door and have friends over for pink lemonade to beat the heat with a cool swim.
Challenge your co-workers to an office decorating competition! Make it a daylong event that includes pink treats, breast health education, even a pink costume contest.
What’s a fun way to dress up and spend time with friends? Bingo! Get creative with some unique decorations and hold a pink bingo party in your community.
One of the easiest ways to get your school involved is to pink out an athletic event! Just like the Shawnee High School Women’s Lacrosse team, who turned one of their games into a friendly fundraising competition. With the help of their fans, they raised over $2000 for the cure (and to make the night an even bigger victory, they won their game 12-7!)
Whether your event is at a school or workplace, encourage people to bake pink cookies, cupcakes and pies. Everything can be offered for donations to Susan G. KomenŽ to fight breast cancer. You can also have a contest and let people vote for their favorite pink dessert.
Make the most of the winter weather with a Pink Snowlady Challenge! Transform a snowy construction with pink floral paint and challenge your community, your colleagues, your friends, family and neighbors to raise funds before the snowlady melts! The pictured snowlady lasted a week before she melted and helped raise over $10,000.
Change things up at your office and talk to your HR department about having a casual pink Friday (or any day). Encourage coworkers to wear pink in exchange for a donation, and don’t forget the pink cookies in the break room. These spirited pink workers from Champion Self Storage went all out in honor of their fellow breast cancer survivor coworkers!
Sanzio Angeli and Dylan Whitesel
Teenaged friends Dylan Whitesel and Sanzio Angeli had a cause: to support Dylan’s mother, who had been diagnosed with stage IV metastatic breast cancer when he was in the 7th grade, and to help fight breast cancer in a big way.
Baseball Gives Back
Thunder Baseball League's "Bats for a Cure" Baseball Tournament has been so successful, that this year, during its 4th annual tournament, it raised close to $20,000.
Evelyn & Sierra's Lemonade Stand
This year at their local Race for the Cure event, the sisters made 45 gallons of lemonade and raised a record-breaking $501, bringing their total donation over the years to more than $1,100.
Firefighters in the Fight
Firefighter Mike L. faces fear every day, but nothing prepared him for hearing his wife Tina was diagnosed with breast cancer.
