Susan G. Komen - Share Your Moments

ShareYourMoments


For the month of October, we are partnering with Susan G. Komen to promote their "give a moment" campaign for NBCAM. This campaign encourages people to share their moments of hope, family, health, friendship and love to bring the community together and show those affected by breast cancer that they are not alone. Give a moment today by going to the BFTC Facebook page.

"July 23 2:34 p.m.: She found a lump. The moment that changed everything."

Facts
Did you know there are over 75,000 volunteers across the U.S. working to combat breast cancer? These volunteers have helped to raise over $820 million. Since our inception, Bowl for the Cure has raised over 13 million due to your support, but where does the money go?

Funds are distributed through a variety of areas including research, screening, education, treatment and psychosocial support programs for breast cancer. These areas assist in the prevention of the disease, the fight against the disease and the care and support for patients.

Pink Highlight –
Koffee Kup Bowling League, San Antonio, Texas
This month, we are highlighting Alice Crawford and the Koffee Kup Bowling League. Alice has tirelessly spread the word about Bowl for the Cure in San Antonio, attending league secretary meetings, speaking to the local association and calling managers. The league has supported the cause for years, raising around $40,000 since 2000. These women represent how a small league can make a big impact. Thank you for your hard work and support!
