fundraise

We greatly appreciate your willingness to fundraise for the Foundation.  We promise that 100 percent of our proceeds remain in this community, and 88 cents of every dollar is applied directly to the programs and services we offer to people living with breast cancer. 
Whether you are an individual, a small business owner or a large corporation, coordinating a fundraising event for our Foundation is limited only by your imagination and you can hold your fundraiser any time of year.

Before you begin to plan your fundraiser, we ask that you contact us regarding your event.  Please tell us about your fundraiser by completing the Third Party Fundraiser Form.  We will do our best to respond to all requests within two business days. 

If hosting your own event is not for you, consider creating a team for the Gloria Gemma Run/Walk, held every October.  The Run/Walkis our largest fundraising event, and offers a great way to raise money while having fun.  In addition, there are prizes and awards for the top fundraisers.  Please click here to create or join a Run/Walk team.

You may prefer to sponsor a torch in our Illuminations of Life Ceremony at Flames of Hope.  This ceremony is the pinnacle of the Flames of Hope weekend.  In this emotion-filled event, torches symbolize the memory of those who have lost their battles to breast cancer, and the torches light the way for those who will be diagnosed, in the future.  Torchbearers consist of breast cancer survivors and loved ones of those who have passed.   Please click here to sponsor a torch or a torchbearer.
