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!
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 2011-2012 Komen-Texarkana was able to fund $355,716 for education, screening and treatment services in six counties: two in Texas - Bowie and Cass; and four counties in Arkansas - Miller, Little River, Lafayette and Hempstead. This year we’re aiming even higher! If every Race participant raised an average of $100 over the registration fee, Komen-Texarkana would raise an additional $800,000! Together, we can save lives!
Fundraising is easy with online fundraising tools! When you registered for the Race you automatically received your own fundraising website which can be personalized. Start now by logging in, and encouraging everyone you know to visit your site, see what you are doing in the fight against breast cancer and make a donation on your behalf. 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!
