Rally for the Cure®
Rally for the Cure is a grassroots program that works to spread awareness about breast health and breast cancer in support of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® through volunteered organized golf, tennis and social events. Rally is the cause marketing arm of Condé Nast Publications and has been a valued partner of Komen for the Cure since 1996.
Rally empowers people to join the fight against breast cancer by educating their friends, family and community on the importance of early detection through an activity they are passionate about.
Volunteer "Ambassadors" host and plan the events locally. A registration fee of $20 per person (non-tax-deductible) enables participants to participate in a contest for a chance to win a significant prize. Example contests include a closest-to-the-pin challenge for golf events and a round robin tournament for tennis events. In addition, each registered participant receives event favors including a Rally premium, a subscription to select Condé Nast magazine and important breast health information from Komen.
Rally's primary goal is to support Komen's commitment to awareness as the first step in eliminating breast cancer. Since its start in 1996, Rally has reached over 1.65 million participants and has raised more than $50 million for Komen.
