How Rally for the Cure® Works
It's easy to Rally! A coordinator at Rally Headquarters will help guide you, the volunteer Rally "Ambassador" through the process. Your club designates a date as the group's Rally for the Cure® day. The event may be part of a regular play day, an existing tournament or you can hold a tournament designed especially for Rally for the Cure®.
Participants pay a $20 entry fee, automatically entering them in the contest at your club. The $20 entry fee is for U.S. events only, the entry fee in Canada is $32 U.S. dollars. The Rally will award the winner of each contest a significant prize. Most importantly, all participants receive detailed breast cancer awareness materials from Komen for the Cure, as well as a pin - designed exclusively for Rally for the Cure® - featuring the symbolic pink ribbon.
The entry fee also entitles all participants to receive a one-year magazine subscription (call headquarters for choices), helping further the Rally for the Cure® mission to disseminate information about breast cancer and reinforce the awareness and early detection messages that save lives.
Rally for the Cure® is a partnership with Condé Nast Publications, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the volunteer Ambassadors and the participants. Since it's inception in 1996, this awareness-driven campaign has spread the life-saving message of early detection to more than one million active Rally for the Cure® participants and to the people in their lives. In 2007, more than 3,300 Rally Ambassadors signed up over 200,000 participants who became first-hand recipients of the important messages about early detection.
