YOUR DOLLARS AT WORK

The Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the CureTM 3 Day is a 60-mile walk for women and men who want to make a personal difference in the fight to end breast cancer. Net proceeds fund innovative global breast cancer research and local community programs supporting education, screening and treatment.

  The 2009 Komen 3-Day for the Cure Series took place in 15 cities nationwide and raised more than $91 million.

  Since its inception in 2003, the 3-Day for the Cure has raised nearly $500 million.

  Since 1982, Susan G. Komen for the Cure has invested nearly $1.5 billion in breast cancer research and community programs and promises to invest another $1 billion by 2017.

  Of every dollar spent, 84 cents goes toward mission (research, education, screening, treatment); the remaining 16 cents goes toward administrative and fundraising costs.

  In fiscal year 2009, Komen made grants to more than 1,900 community organizations totaling more than $93 million. Those dollars funded grants allowing:

  More than 3.9 million people to receive breast cancer education materials and information

  More than 260,000 women to receive a potentially life-saving mammogram

  Approximately 5,000 people to be diagnosed with breast cancer who otherwise may not have been diagnosed

  More than 100,000 women to benefit from psychosocial services and treatment assistance

The Pink Totties have all made a commitment to walk the full 60 miles and raise a minimum of $2,300 each, with 11 of us on the team thats an amazing $25,300.00. 100% of your donations are donated to the 3 Day.  The Pink Totties hold 2 major events each year to raise funds; The Cancer Firkin Sucks 5k and Wine Tasting for the Cure.  Net proceeds from our 5k and wine night are given to the 3 Day.  The Pink Totties also print and sell t-shirts and tank tops, proceeds from the sales go to the Pink Totties.
