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.
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.
Pink Hair Extensions (Fun!)
The official Breast Cancer Awareness month is October. During the month of October, there is many other interesting and exciting opportunities to participate in that raise funds for the cure. You can even buy pink hair extensions to support breast cancer awareness!
If your college or university has the fraternity, Zeta Tau Alpha, you can help their philanthropy by participating in the Race for the Cure and Breast Cancer Awareness. You can also help raise awareness about ZTA’s philanthropy on campus.
Deciding to become involved in a cause that helps save lives is a worthwhile way to give back to the community and is rewarding.
