We are honored to be contacted so often by passionate members of our community wanting to organize an event or promotion benefiting breast cancer awareness and research. The SC Mountains to Midlands Affiliate of Komen for the Cure® partners with others because it benefits both parties in terms of public awareness.
We want to make this process as simple as possible. In order for us to give each event and/or promotion request its due attention, we ask that you first read through the guidelines available to assist you in planning your event or promotion. If after you've read the guidelines, you are interested in entering into an agreement with the Komen SC Mountains to Midlands Affiliate, please fill out the Relationship Proposal Form online. Or, you may download an application to complete and return to SC Mountains to Midlands Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, 531 S. Main Street, Suite ML-10, Greenville, SC 29601.
If you decide that the size of your event does not warrant the effort to follow these guidelines, there are three other ways to support Komen:
Option 1: You may want to consider registering for Passionately Pink for the Cure®. This program allows individuals, business and clubs/groups to fundraise for Komen. The website provides resources for your fundraising activities as well as a customizable web page. Click Here to learn how you can become Passionately Pink!
Option 2: You may want to consider not using the Komen name/logo and instead making a general statement that the funds raised will go to a local breast health organization or breast cancer research and support. We would be honored to receive funds raised and would give public recognition for your donation.
Option 3: One way to education your friends, family and coummunity on the importance of early detection of breast cancer is by hosting a Rally for the Cure event. Rally provides all the materials including a prize, participant favors, event decorations and important breast health information. More information can be found at www.rallyforthecure.com.
