Anyone can register for Sleep In for the Cure—whether you live in the area but will be out of town on Mother’s Day, or whether you live halfway-across the globe but want to virtually join loved ones in Philadelphia supporting our cause! As a Sleep In for the Cure supporter, you’ll have your Race number and T-shirt mailed to you (cost already included in event price). This way you can wear your Race T-shirt wherever you are, whenever you want, to start the conversation about breast cancer with your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers.... everyone! As a Sleep In for the Cure supporter, we also encourage you to use our online fundraising tools to help us reach our Bold Goal: to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths in the U.S. by 50 percent by the year 2026.

We also offer youth-size Race T-shirts (while supplies last) so be sure to register as early as possible. Lastly, kids can fundraise too! Every year young people take pride in saving pennies, having lemonade sales, asking friends and families to donate and other creative ways to help support the cause—moreover, their success is making a huge impact on our ability to more save lives!
