April Showers bring CURE Power thanks to our Volunteer Family!

April is showering down opportunities for our Komen Philadelphia family... with your involvement now driving empowerment for our fight long after this month passes by! While our Race for the Cure is front-and-center, it's critical we all work together to assure all our other programs, initiatives and life-saving outreach also remain at the forefront. So, please join us on April 16, and help turn these showers of opportunities into POWER for all women.

Some action items we'll be talking about include: 

  • The Race by Storm: Although we know there will be NO rain on Race day, right now, Race volunteer activities are torrential. We'll stem the floods by discussing what's up, what's new and what still needs to be done!      
  • It's Pouring Pigs: Warm weather means lots of 'invitations' for our Dietz & Watson Pretty In Pig gals to travel the community. We need ambassadors to help them return home full of cash for the cures.
  • Sprinkles of Hope: Our Asian-American Women's Breast Health event is on the horizon, May 31 - bringing hope and survival to hundreds. 
  • Deluge of Doing Good: A look at the good works happening by supporters in our community to raise funds and awareness, and how volunteers can represent Komen Philadelphia. 
  • Rainbow Connection: A most hope-filled discussion for our Race season, led by young survivor and the inspiration for the Team's Team in 2014, Johanna Yemm.


If you'll be joining us April 16 at 6:00 PM, kindly R.S.V.P. by e-mailing your full name and the names of any friends you plan to bring with you, to Kelly O'Donnell.
