WHY HOST A RALLY EVENT
Rally for the Cure® is a grassroots program that works to support Susan G. Komen’s commitment to awareness as the first step in eliminating breast cancer through volunteer-organized golf, tennis and social events. The program aims to create a fun day of play while educating women about breast health and remind them to get their annual screening.
While the main focus of this program is awareness, Rally for the Cure events can—and frequently do—become fundraising platforms as well. In fact, to date, Rally events have raised more than $77 million for Komen. If a Rally ambassador decides to include a fundraising element for the event, he/she can choose for the money to support Komen Philadelphia, another Komen affiliate or Komen National.
