How Your School Can Get Involved

Raise Awareness: Education and early detection are the best ways to improve survival rates. Organize a rally or assembly to inform your student body about breast cancer and how to detect it as early as possible. Let us know if we can help by providing a speaker.

Raise Funds: There are many ways you can raise funds. Your school can host events through October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, or get creative and design a pink fundraiser at any time of the year! Some fun-filled, school-wide, fundraising ideas can be found in our Schools for the Cure handbook.

Join the School Challenge: Add excitement to your fundraising efforts by joining the school challenge! Take part in our Annual Race for the Cure by forming a team. Be the top team among local schools and your school will receive an award and special recognition Komen Baton Rouge!
