No-Fail Fundraising Tip of the Month

So don’t relax your efforts just because the Race is almost here. In fact, you and your team members should reach out to even more people for donations over the next several days. As Race day draws near, stories about our Race in the news and on social media will inspire our community to get involved—and your team can be right there waiting for them with the perfect opportunity to support the cause! To make it easy for people to support team fundraising, be sure to give them your direct link for donating to you:

  • Go here,and then click on “profile.”
  • Scroll down to the fundraisers section to find the link to your online fundraising page.

This Month’s Team to Beat: Team Trow

This Race for the Cure season, the Captain of Team Trow, Kathy Trow celebrates 2.5 years since ending her breast cancer treatment. From day one, Kathy has been an inspiration to her team, and to all of us. Channeling her experience with breast cancer, and especially the ways she discovered her inner strengths as she became a relentless fighter on her journey to survival, Kathy leads Team Trow to fight for all men and women impacted by breast cancer. For the first two years, Team Trow reached the very top of our team fundraising ladder, raising tens-of-thousands of dollars, and in the process embracing their community in awareness, education, hope  and celebration of our progress. Moreover, they on course in 2018 to do the same. Team Trow epitomizes team spirit and demonstrates that from children to adults, doctors to businessmen, men to women, the fight to end breast cancer belongs to everyone!
