We are excited to announce the “Raise the Ribbon” campaign, a month-long fundraising effort to raise at least $1 million to help eradicate breast cancer by December 1st!
If 10,000 people donate $100, we can reach our goal!
The “Raise the Ribbon” campaign was born after the biggest fundraising event for Komen Houston, the annual Race for the Cure®, only reached 50 percent of its $3 million goal despite having over 25,000 participants.
The gap in fundraising jeopardizes grants that Komen gives each year to organizations who offer breast cancer research, education, screening along with diagnosis and treatment services in Brazoria, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, Liberty and Montgomery counties.
Houstonians are encouraged to ‘Raise the Ribbon’ through their own fundraising efforts including ‘Color for the Cure.’ ‘Color for the Cure’ is a challenge where those participating reach out to friends family, friends, and colleagues promising to dye their hair pink or wear a funky pink outfit if they reach their personal fundraising goal.
Again, thank you so much for your support.
Let’s Raise the Ribbon together to meet our 2012 goal and save lives in the Houston area.
