Fundraising Information

 

Q. Are we required to fundraise?

 

A. The fundraising requirement is $500.  Of course, if you raise more, we applaud you. Just Imagine the IMPACT - If every Walker raised just $500, we would bring in an additional $100,000 to support local screening, treatment and educational programs in our community! 

 

Q. Does the money raised benefit our community?

 

A. Yes! Up to 50% of the income from the Walk benefits the National Capital Region (Northern VA, Washington DC and Maryland) to fund vital breast cancer health education and breast cancer screening and treatment programs. The other 50% goes toward supporting a junior research faculty grant to investigate metastatic breast cancer prevention and treatment.
