Fundraising is easy with online fundraising tools! Once you register for the Race you automatically receive your own online Participant Center. The Participant Center contains tools for tracking donations, sending emails, and most importantly editing your personal page. Your personal page is viewable by others so you can use to communicate why you are a Race participant and encourage family, friends, and others to make an online donation directly to you via your personal page.
- One out of eight women will have to fight breast cancer in her lifetime. That’s why, since 1999, Susan G. Komen® Austin has been hard at work here in the Austin area raising money to provide breast cancer screening, education and medical services as well as financial and emotional support. In fact, 75 percent of the money we raise each year is put to work right here in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis and Williamson counties to improve the lives of everyone affected by this deadly disease. The remaining funds are dedicated to global research. For more information about the organization, please call 512-473-0900 or visit www.komenaustin.org.

Cash/checks can be mailed to our office, dropped off on Race day, or turned in at the office. Regardless, a Race Donation Form must be included with any cash or check donations so we know whom to credit the donation.
Mailed in Race Donation Forms must be received by November 30, 2013 for donations to be credited toward your fundraising goal. Any forms received after that date will be counted as general Race donations.
