Rally for the Cure® is a valued program for Komen as it consistently supports each aspect of Komen’s promise. The program provides a platform for groups to raise funds for Komen for the Cure, which has generated more than $45 million since its inception in 1996. The funds raised through the Rally will be important for Komen’s efforts to make sure quality care is available for everyone, everywhere, as well as for support for scientific research.
Bowl for the Cure® is an initiative organized by the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) through The Bowling Foundation. Since the program’s inception in 2000, Bowl for the Cure® has raised close to $8 million for Komen for the Cure while raising bowlers’ awareness about breast cancer screening, treatment and support. Bowling leagues designate one league session of their choice each season as a Bowl for the Cure® event. February is Bowl for the Cure® month, which is a popular time for USBC leagues across the nation to organize their Bowl for the Cure® events. Bowlers can designate one league night to donate a specific amount, such as a nickel per pin, or stage pledge nights, raffles and auctions. Local bowling associations also are encouraged to team up with Komen Affiliates to conduct a Bowl for the Cure® event for the entire community in their service area.
