Race for the Cure and Breast Cancer Awareness

RACE FOR THE CURE

By choosing to participate in an event, such as the Race for the Cure, you can become involved in the community and save lives. You feel like you are more than just a college student by applying the knowledge you have received in college to help a greater cause. Accomplishing your goals in college increases your likelihood to succeed in the future, and you can more actively learn to work with others by volunteering in the 5k race.

Walk or Run in the 5K Races

The Race for the Cure is flexible. You are allowed to choose to either walk in the 5k races or run, which means that you don’t have to be an athlete to walk and still make a difference in your community by helping to save lives. There are numerous races to choose from each year to participate in, since there are more than one-hundred and fifty races with one million participating people.

Donate Money

You can also donate money to help save lives if you do not have the time with your busy college schedule and still make a difference!

Save Your Yoplait Yogurt Lids

Also, you can save the Yoplait yogurt lids that have pink Susan G. Komen ribbon emblems on them to help participate in the cause. Keep an eye out for when Yoplait is running these programs.  You can either mail them in or input the codes online to donate 10 cents a piece to the foundation.
