You may be a runner, a volunteer or an activist. However you choose to get involved, just know that everything you do makes a difference. After all, without the support of people like you, the 10 million people who will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the next 25 years could die. These are our mothers, sisters, and friends who face breast cancer diagnoses every day. Susan G. Komen for the Cure® strives to raise funds and awareness through events and legislative actions. Breast cancer is still claiming far too many of our loved ones’ lives. So, how will you get involved?
There are many volunteer opportunities that you might find fun and rewarding. There are many Race Committee positions and other special events throughout the year. Our Homewood office always needs support volunteers and our speakers bureau can put you to work at health fairs and other community events.
75% of all money raised in North Central Alabama stays right here in our community to provide treatment and screenings to our friends and family members. This funding also helps to provide critical education on the importance of screenings and breast health. If you’d like to be part of the fundraising efforts, join us now!
All year long, Komen North Central Alabama hosts events and we’re often the beneficiary of other local events. Most of the events are open to the public and we would love to have you join us. Or if you don’t see something that looks fun to you, host an event for us!
Be sure to also take advantage of the great educational activities we provide to communities in our service area throughout the year!
