With one in eight women in the U.S. being diagnosed with breast cancer during her lifetime, many people you know will be or already have been affected by breast cancer. This includes teachers, coaches, staff, administrators, parents, family members, and more.
Whether students put on an event to raise breast cancer awareness, to celebrate current survivors, or to honor those who have lost their battle, the event can give them an opportunity to come up with creative ways to contribute to the mission to end breast cancer, and help spread the word that people can, and should, take charge of their health.
Pink Out for the Cure is a fundraising program designed for students, schools, and athletic programs. This program empowers students to fundraise for Komen Kentucky, educates parents, faculty and teammates about the importance of breast health, honors breast cancer survivors and memorializes those lost.
Pink Out for the Cure also helps schools and leagues to:
Increase attendance at sporting events
Showcase school pride, unity, and good sportsmanship
Generate community and media interest in your school’s philanthropic pursuits
Spotlight team players who exemplify stewardship
