Komen Orange County Race for the Cure has a big goal – to raise $3.1 million for vital breast health services. But as everyone knows, you eat the elephant one bite at a time. With that philosophy in mind, Komen Orange County has launched the 125 Challenge, a call-to-action for each Race participant to raise at least $125 each.
Why $125? That is the average cost of a Komen-funded mammogram. The need for breast health screenings is great this year because of the increasing number of women who are, or soon will be, without health insurance and unable to afford breast health care.
As an incentive, each Race participant who meets the 125 Challenge will receive a reusable tote bag, supported by Farmers & Merchant Bank. It is the fall fashion statement that says you can meet a worthwhile challenge. Spread the word.
