BENEFITING: KAY YOW CANCER FUND
EVENT DATE: Sep 14, 2016
Beginning September 14th- October 26th, in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, KYCF is a part of the Revlon Love 2016 Challenge! This challeng is a six-week fundraising competition launched by Revlon where organizations that support women health cause compete for cash prize donations from Revlon. Through this campaign, we can make an even bigger impact on cancer research and continue to fund our Rex Healthcare Mobile Mammography units. Our units provide free breast health exams and provide awareness and information for women who are underserved in rural communities.
Our vision started with the late Coach Kay Yow who always said, "This isn't about me, it's about the fight against cancer." Then and now because of her fight she inspires others across the world. Yow's very public and courageous battle with breast cancer, from the first time in 1987 until when she passed away in 2009 brought awareness to so many people. She missed games at NC State as she underwent treatment, but her resolve always brought her back to the sidelines with a gracious smile, fighting spirit and an undeniable Faith in the impossible.
Coach Yow felt and understood that her battle with cancer was directly impacted by research and clinical trials, something she didn't quite understand at first. Since the majority of these research projects are privately funded, these researchers desparetely need our support in order for them to continue to make strides in finding a cure for cancer. The money raised helps to find better treatments, stop reoccurences with the disease and get more information on how to treat different types of women's cancers effectively.
When you support us in this challenge you can help us raise even more money for research as well as help us to continue to fund our mobile mammography unit that travels to remote areas to help serve the underserved women in those commmunities.

Coach Yow's mission and legacy continues well after her death to extend and improve the lives of all women battling cancer. There is still much progress to be made in the world and being successful in this challenge can help us tremendously. Get involved today. You can donate or become a team member and fundraise your own campaign for someone you love or that you know is fighting cancer.
