Financing Breast Cancer Awareness

breast cancer walk

By: Ms. J

Did you know that you can save a life by donating to a breast cancer awareness fund? Throughout the month of October, many organizations will be hosting walks and/or runs to raise money to support this cause. You can participate by attending one in your area. Do it as an individual event or start a team. Advertise what you are doing through social media or word of mouth and ask people to donate to your cause. Even better ask your employer to match your efforts to double your donation.

The funds that are donated:

  • provide free screening tests
  • helps support those who are diagnosed with it
  • research to find a cure
  • educate the public

If you want to find one in your area go to:
