A Little Pink Competition

One of the easiest ways to get your school involved is to pink out an athletic event! Just like the Shawnee High School Women’s Lacrosse team, who turned one of their games into a friendly fundraising competition. With the help of their fans, they raised over $2000 for the cure (and to make the night an even bigger victory, they won their game 12-7!)

Whether your event is at a school or workplace, encourage people to bake pink cookies, cupcakes and pies. Everything can be offered for donations to Susan G. KomenŽ to fight breast cancer. You can also have a contest and let people vote for their favorite pink dessert.

Pink Snowlady Fundraising Challenge

Make the most of the winter weather with a Pink Snowlady Challenge! Transform a snowy construction with pink floral paint and challenge your community, your colleagues, your friends, family and neighbors to raise funds before the snowlady melts! The pictured snowlady lasted a week before she melted and helped raise over $10,000.

Pink offices are more fun

Change things up at your office and talk to your HR department about having a casual pink Friday (or any day). Encourage coworkers to wear pink in exchange for a donation, and don’t forget the pink cookies in the break room. These spirited pink workers from Champion Self Storage went all out in honor of their fellow breast cancer survivor coworkers!
