Why Fundraise? Because promising research projects are in need of our funding and we are going to make every penny count!

The Wings of Karen 5k Bra Dash was created to enable promising research projects to take life. We believe in the power of our participants and are inspired not only by your enthusaium for our cause, but by the joined sense of urgency to find solutions that can make an impact today. We can accelerate answers for our loved ones that face cancer and for our future generation by raising $100 each. Collectively, we are creating a brighter future for all.  

Working hand in hand with the research community, we are turning your efforts into results.  You are an integral part of the solution, connecting donors to researchers, researchers to patients. We can do this, and will with your help.  $200,000 is our overall goal. You can help make it happen!

Every adult is highly encouraged to raise a minimum of $100 by race day. This is a drop in the bucket right? Asking a few friends/family to give $10 means that, collectively, we will be able to to accelerate the promising research projects listed here at one of our area's leading institutions. We also will reward your efforts personally if you go above and beyond the target.   

100% of all funds raised will support our joined mission - YOU + Wings of Karen means business when pursuing a cure. We wouldn’t have it any other way...this is a race to save lives. For fun ideas on fundraising, click here.

Donation/Fundraising questions are answered on our Q & A page.

What's the 20/20 Team Captain Incentive?
The more we have engaged in the fight the bigger our impact will be. We want to salute the team captains by rewarding their leadership and enthusiasm for our cause.  If your team is one of the FIRST 20 teams to have 20 members listed under your team name, you (team captain) will receive one incredible gift courtesy of The Walking Company for a complimentary pair of shoes from their exclusive brand (value of up to $150).
