Start a Team for more fun (AND fundraising)!
Doing this Event as a group can make it feel even more rewarding and enjoyable. All you need to do is gather a total of five people—no matter what their ages, fitness levels, or preference for running or walking. Here's how to get started:
Suggested Minimum Pledge: $100 per person
Although fundraising is not required, we urge you to gather donations to help local cancer patients. Last year, this event saw close to 1100 walkers and runners and raised $75,000: this year, the need is even greater, and with your help, we're hoping to DOUBLE the proceeds from last year's event to help even more women in cancer treatment. If every participant raises $100, we can help more women than ever before!
Ask ten friends to donate $10 each; make a $50 donation and have your employer donate; hold a garage sale and donate the proceeds, and you'll have $100 before you know it. But don't stop there! All donations are welcome, and the sky is the limit. So many people in our community have experienced cancer or cared for someone with cancer that they will be grateful for the chance to help if you just ask!
Your donations serve LOCAL women in two ways:
1) Providing IMMEDIATE FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE for basic needs. Cancer is expensive, and too often women are forced to make impossible decisions: prescription co-pays or food, miss treatment or pay the rent. Our grants, offered on the spot to women in treatment, make an immediate, tangible difference.
2) Providing healing baskets full of comforting, practical items. Every women in treatment or breast or gynecologic cancer at Swedish Cancer Institute can receive one of our baskets
