|Looking to get fit in the New Year through an outdoor challenge or personal fitness goal? Make your challenge even more meaningful and get support from your family and friends by pairing it with an easy fundraising goal to support breast cancer prevention. Join the Breast Cancer Fund’s Get Active Challenge to get in shape and help to stop breast cancer before it starts.
With the Get Active Challenge, add a fundraising element to any event or goal you choose. Whether it’s running a marathon or losing weight, create a personal Webpage to set your goals and begin asking family and friends for their support! You’ll also be automatically entered to win *exclusive incentive prizes!*
Here’s how it works:
First step: Register for an event or establish your own fitness goal.
Second step: Create your Get Active personalized fundraising page now. Through this site, you can let your friends know about your goals, why you’re taking on this challenge and that you’re supporting groundbreaking efforts to stop breast cancer before it starts.
Third step: Begin gathering donations. It’s easier than you think, and there are no fees for registering or participating. Everything you raise will benefit the Breast Cancer Fund! Try setting a goal of fundraising $1,000. Again, exclusive incentive prizes are available to support your fundraising efforts. The challenge runs as long as you’re working to achieve your goals, so get started today!
Fourth step: When you reach your goals, please share stories and photos with us! Join the Breast Cancer Fund’s page on Facebook and write about your experience. Send us your photos, and we’ll upload them to a Breast Cancer Fund Flickr page. If you’re also interested in writing about your experience, submit 200-300 words and we’ll post it to our blog!
Make your physical challenge even more meaningful by using it as an occasion to raise money for the Breast Cancer Fund! Your efforts will help support the Breast Cancer Fund’s groundbreaking public education and advocacy initiatives to eliminate the environmental causes of the disease. Together, we can demonstrate that—like working to prevent breast cancer—anything is possible if taken one step (or one cycle revolution!) at a time.

A growing body of scientific evidence points to toxic chemicals and radiation as factors contributing to the high rates of breast cancer. Through public education, advocacy, corporate accountability and other innovative campaigns, the Breast Cancer Fund works to stop breast cancer before it starts.
