October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Komen Utah will be celebrating with something “BIG“! The BigWigs campaign runs from October 1st to 31st, 2017
The Komen Utah BigWigs campaign engages community leaders in Utah as representatives in the fight against breast cancer. During the month-long campaign, each BigWig has a goal to raise a minimum of $2,000, which will be used to ensure access to essential breast health services, education programs and support research to find the cures for breast cancer.
Through this program, 75 percent of funds raised remain in our community to help fund our local breast cancer initiatives. The other 25 percent of funds raised will help fund cutting edge research to find the cures.
12 BigWigs have teamed up with Komen Utah to raise funds. To donate to your favorite BigWig’s fundraising goal, go to www.komenutah.org
