College Girl® Against Breast Cancer is a non-profit foundation geared toward breast cancer awareness at the high school and college levels. Monies raised through our ColorForACure.org 5K run/walk in communities across the nation allows our foundation to provide educational, financial, and emotional awareness, as well as simple loving support to people battling breast cancer.
Only you can help us work toward a cure!
College Girl® Against Breast Cancer's goal revolves around these simple concepts:
- Promoting a fund raising 5k run/walk event for breast cancer awareness.
- Giving back to groups and organizations as much as possible
- Helping women establish solid friendships and a strong new social network.
College Girl® Against Breast Cancer offers teams of high school and college-aged women across the nation, including cheerleading squads, sports programs, sororities, or individuals who simply want to be involved with a good cause. We provide them with an opportunity to not only benefit themselves, but also local breast cancer charities and other individuals who are affected by breast cancer.
College Girl® Against Breast Cancer's main beneficiaries are breast cancer organizations that are working toward a cure and those who are in need of breast cancer treatment and financial support. Each ColorForACure.org 5K run/walk paid registration will benefit either your classmates who are battling cancer or a local breast cancer charity. College Girl® Against Breast Cancer seeks to make a real difference in the lives of those affected by breast cancer.
About 1 in 8 U.S. women (just under 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. In 2013, an estimated 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 64,640 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer *. These statistics prove that it is more important than ever for high school and college girls to become involved in breast cancer awareness programs and activities such as the ColorForACure.org 5K run/walk. College Girl® Against Breast Cancer would like to see the number of survivors grow exponentially in the coming years, with teams of girls across the nation becoming involved with College Girl® Against Breast Cancer.
