THIS OCTOBER THERE'LL BE LOTS OF OPPORTUNITES TO SPEND MONEY TO

PROMOTE BREAST CANCER AWARENESS

backpacks, bird seed, coffee cups, cosmetics, lapel pins, rubber duckies

BCRC WOULD LIKE TO PROVIDE ANOTHER OPTION

Sign up for BCRC's Locally Pink Campaign, turn awareness into action, and transform "pink purchasing" into direct donations by leveraging your social network to provide concrete services for women in our community diagnosed with breast cancer.

 Locally Pink is an online fundraising competition to raise funds for BCRC during October – National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. You can participate as an individual or as part of a team (max of 4 members per team).

We’ve also orchestrated Locally Pink Motivational Antics to encourage your supporters to donate to your campaign. The antics require someone associated with your campaign to make a bit of a spectacle of themselves – and, yes, we’re going to splash it all over Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

But don’t worry – if you think you can reach the goal without agreeing to the antics, you’re free to opt out and still compete for the prizes.

All proceeds will benefit the BCRC and provide concrete services to members of our community diagnosed with breast cancer. The money you raise will make a difference here – for women you might know.        

Maybe she lives down the street; maybe she works in your office; maybe she’s your mother, your daughter, your sister, your wife. Maybe she’s your best friend. Maybe       she’s you.

BCRC invites you to make an impact that matters locally...LOCALLY PINK!
