Power of ONE Week
September 12-17 | ONE final week, and ONE final push to make a HUGE impact in the fight against breast cancer. Together, let's see what a difference ONE week can make.
Be sure to join our Facebook Group to participate in the activities along with everyone registered to our Wisconsin Walks this year! Post photos of your daily celebrations to our Facebook Group or social media and use #PowerOfONEWeek so they’ll be displayed on our ONE Community Photo Wall!
Complete the ONE Mission Journey, found online or on the MORE THAN PINK Walk App. Then share one new thing you learned on social with a link to your fundraising page.
Share a photo of your reason for walking via text, email or social media. Ask your audience to support you and your reason for walking. Get ready for this weekend! Download and fill out your In Celebration / In Memory back sign now.
A great activity for teams, family and friends, this day is all about community! Host an outdoor dinner party/virtual cocktail hour. Ask all those in attendance to donate $20 "at the door". We even have some ONE pot recipes (or share your own!) and Komen Conversation Cards available for download in the Fundraising Tools section of your Participant Center.
It’s a Power of ONE Week Party to celebrate as ONE for the cause. Take this day to thank your donors for their support! Record a quick happy dance and share with your thank you note.
It's time to pink out! Let's see those tutus, boas, vintage Walk tees, accessories and more. Share a selfie in our Facebook Group and then post to social media using #powerofONEweek #morethanPINK/#RacefortheCure #ONEkomen.
FUN FUNDRAISING IDEA: Use your outfit to create a "Dare to Wear" fundraising challenge, telling your followers you'll add one more pink item to your Walk day outfit for every $20 you raise on Friday.
Join us for Komen Bingo! This week, cross off blocks on the bingo card as you participate in Power of ONE Week activities, learn about Komen's 360° approach to finding the cures to breast cancer and, most importantly, raise funds to support Komen's work. How many ways can you spell KOMEN? Click to download the Komen Bingo Card and Power of ONE Week Schedule and play along. Post your progress on social media and in our Walk Facebook Group!
We look forward to celebrating with you on Sunday, September 18, 2022!
