HOW YOU HELP
Mammogram Fund: Flocks of Love
Through our sister 501c3 charity, Carolina Cups, you have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for mammograms in the last three years.
Dubbed Flocks of Love, donations to this mammogram fund are fully tax deductible and every single penny pays for life-saving screening to someone in need.
Did you know that $50 funds a mammogram? Which means that every fifty dollars you raise could save a life.
We recognize these heroic donations by placing a plastic pink flamingo in our annual Flocks of Love display for every mammogram raised.
Our Flocks of Love has held the Guinness World Record for several years, and with your help, we will shatter our previous records and our flock will stand 2000 strong this year.
HOW WE HELP
The Event: Pledge the Pink
In addition to the dedicated mammogram fund, Pledge the Pink supports every part of
the fight by funding biopsies, treatment, patient services, and research.
We are able to fund these other critical areas through corporate sponsorships, event proceeds, merchandise sales, and local support.
We also produce several virtual events, allowing us reach more people and grow our flock. The proceeds from these virtual races provide special grants to cover patient’s transportation to treatment, childcare/elder care during their appointments, home care, insurance co-pays, lymphedema support, and medications.
Quite simply, we fill the gap and help people that need it most. Without the red-tape and bureaucracy.
