Fundraising for a Cure

The 20th anniversary wristband

In honor of its landmark year, Komen OC is encouraging participants to partake in the “Celebration Donation” by making a donation of $20 or more to celebrate the 20th Annual Race for the Cure. When supporters pledge a “Celebration Donation” at the time of registration, they will receive a limited edition commemorative 20th Annual Race for the Cure wristband.

With a 2011 goal of $3.1 million, Race participants are also encouraged to take the 125 challenge – a call-to-action for each person to raise at least $125, the average cost of a life-saving mammogram.

Calling all teams! You can sign up now at www.komenoc.org/race.

Our current list of the top 5 fundraising teams are:

1. I Survived Real Estate #2155 – Total Raised: $21,825.00

A Pink Parade

Komen survivors were not hard to miss in this year’s Huntington Beach fourth of July parade. The team of survivors, family and supporters were dressed in pink while the Komen pink golf cart led the way. Our Komen volunteers helped spread the word to register for the 20th annual Susan G. Komen Orange County Race for the Cure, on Sunday, Sept. 25 at Fashion Island in Newport Beach.
