Our mission is to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.

Mitzvah project opportunities include helping with Race for the Cure®, held on Mother’s Day every year by:

  • Establishing a race team via our website. Design a team t-shirt.
  • Raising money for Race for the Cure®  as a community service project by asking family, friends, and neighbors for donations, ask local businesses to sell homemade donation cards and donate the proceeds to your team, have a garage sale, decorate ‘super change jars’ and ask friends to collect spare change, hold a car wash, host a game night and ask for a suggested donation at the door.
  • Ask your school to hold a ‘loose change day’. Make a flyer encouraging each student to bring in loose change from home. Have your math class assist with counting, predicting and rolling the change. You can hold this event weekly or monthly.
  • Find out if you can speak to your congregation about Race for the Cure® and set up a bake sale afterwards to raise funds.
