Top Cancer Crusher Contest

Become the Top Cancer Crusher of the Week!

The entire Race Committee is pumped-up and psyched-out about announcing our newest fundraising contest.   Join us in trying to crush breast cancer and find the cures by becoming our next TOP CANCER CRUSHER OF THE WEEK!

Beginning on Monday, August 13th, we will kick-off bimonthly fundraising contests to crown our TOP CANCER CRUSHERS who will it be Houston?  

Here is how the contest works:

  • The contests will run Monday 9:00am to Friday, 9:00am of the week of each contest.   There will be 7 total… starting the week of August 13th through the week of November 5th. 
  • To be eligible, all fundraising dollars must be entered online or dropped off at the Komen Houston office by 9:00am Friday of the contest week.  
  • Remember, it’s every other week and the prizes are FABULOUS!
  • We will be keeping our eyes peeled to see which one of you can raise the most dollars toward the cure during that time period of Monday 9:00am to Friday 9:00am, and earn the coveted title of TOP CANCER CRUSHER OF THE WEEK.
  • The winner will also receive a prize valued at $1,000! Some of the possible prizes include gift-cards by IKEA Houston and Academy Sports & Outdoors, or a hotel package of a two-night stay at the Hampton Inn & Suites New Orleans with a Visa gift-card for travel and entertainment.   There are 7 prizes!
