Did you know 75% of the money Komen Austin raises is invested into LOCAL community health grants and the remaining 25% funds global research to find the cures for breast cancer?
But we can’t do it alone – find out how your school can get involved in our mission to save lives and end breast cancer forever. The Schools for the Cure program teaches students valuable leadership skills and the importance of making an impact in our local community.
Click here to check out the Schools for the Cure handbook with all the details on how to get involved in our 2016 program. The school that raises the most in 2016 will get exclusive free tickets to the Austin Spurs PINK night basketball game at the Cedar Park Center in January 2017.
