Power of ONE Week
October 24-28 | 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.
Complete the ONE Mission Journey. Then share one new thing you learned on social with a link to your fundraising page.
Share a photo of your reason for walking/racing via text, email or social media and ask your audience to support you with a donation. Then get ready for this weekend and download your In Celebration / In Memory back sign now.
A great activity for teams, family and friends, because this day is all about community! Here’s an idea: Host a dinner party or virtual cocktail hour and ask guests to make a donation in lieu of hostess/host gift. We even have some ONE pot recipes (or share your own!) and Komen Conversation Cards to kick-start your plans.
It’s time to celebrate and thank your donors for their support! Use the tools in the Walk app and your Online Fundraising Center to send text and email Thank You’s.
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 #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.

On Saturday, October 29, 2022, we will race for the people who can't: For those too weakened by treatment to join. For those who are suffering. For those we have lost. Together we will fight back against breast cancer.
