Only three more months before the Prevent Cancer 5k Walk/Run on Sunday, September 29 at the home of the Washington Nationals! Summer is a great time to gather friends, family and coworkers for an individual or team fundraising event or project that will support the Prevent Cancer Foundation’s mission to Stop Cancer Before It Starts! Want to support the Foundation’s work in cancer prevention and early detection, but don’t know where to start? Here are just a few simple, fun and inspiring ideas on how you or your team can contribute to the Prevent Cancer 5k:
Last year several of our 5k participants coordinated some unique and exciting fundraising events in support of their 5k team. In 2012, the Dance Trance DC 5k team hosted “Dance Trance Moves to Prevent Cancer,” a one hour dance class followed by a happy hour with raffle drawings on the roof of their studio. In one evening the Dance Trance team raised funds to support the Foundation, recruited several new members to join their team and showed everyone how enjoyable cancer prevention can be!
If you plan on hosting your own individual fundraiser let us know! You can share your ideas/plans with the Foundation or Allison Hutchins. You can also check out a long list of ideas on our fundraising webpage. We would love to help in any way we can. We can’t wait to see you, your family and friends at the 5k Walk/Run on September 29 at Nationals Park!
