More Ways to Support Komen KC with Local Fundraising Initiatives


We are honored to be contacted  often by passionate members of our community who want to organize events and activities throughout the year with proceeds benefiting Susan G. Komen Greater Kansas City. You can participate in an activity that you and your family enjoy, while supporting a good cause — the fight against breast cancer. You can play in a golf tournament, bowl or shop for the cure — the choices are nearly endless, but the results are the same — supporting Susan G. Komen Greater Kansas City

Here are 4 successful fundraising opportunities and/or additional ways to support Komen Kansas City throughout the year:

Be Professionally Pink

It’s time to get moving, to get inspired, and to get PINK!  Your office or organization will look better in pink this October (or any time throughout the year as breast cancer doesn’t work on any special calendar)! Encourage your co-workers to take action on their health by providing essential breast health information and encouragement to get screened.

Make a day or the whole month pink – it is up to you!  Start your planning today for your pink activities and spreading the word on breast health awareness.

Sports for a Cure

Sports for a Cure is an educational and fundraising program. It empowers local athletes, teams and leagues with their efforts to increase breast health and breast cancer awareness through athletic competitions.  Host your own Sports for a Cure “Pink Out” event.  This year, several teams have already taken the challenge to help raise funds for Komen Kansas City. Watching the enthusiasm and pride from the players and students while  planning and participating  in these events has been amazing!  he funds generated from these games have been essential to the nearly $1 million in grants given locally  in 2013.

Bowl for the Cure®

Bowl for the Cure is a year-round fundraising and breast cancer awareness initiative. This effort is sponsored by United States Bowling Congress (USBC) in partnership with Susan G. Komen.

Since Bowl for the Cure’s inception in 2000, people from across the country have hit the lanes to raise over $10,000,000 for breast cancer research, education and local breast health grants.

Whether you bring 10 people or 200 to a bowling center near you, and whether you raise $1,000 or $10,000, you’re helping to ensure that low-income and uninsured women have access to essential breast health education, screening, treatment and support – the key to saving lives!

Interested in starting your own event? We’re with you 100% of the way! To make things easy, we have a fantastic event checklist to help guide you through the process.
