How does a BigWigs campaign work?
The BigWigs campaign engages corporate and community leaders within our area as representatives in the fight against breast cancer. During the campaign, each BigWig will raise money, which will be used to ensure access to essential breast health services and education programs, and support research to find the cures for breast cancer.
Through this program, 75% of funds raised remain in the Greater Baton Rouge community to help fund breast health education, screening, treatment and psychosocial services.
Why participate in the 2018 BigWigs campaign?
Louisiana ranks among the top two states in our nation in breast cancer mortality. Your participation helps fund life-saving efforts in our 10-parish area.
