    Rally for the CureŽ is a grassroots program that works to spread awareness about breast health and breast cancer in support of Susan G. Komen for the CureŽ. The mission is to empower people to join the fight against breast cancer by educating their friends, family and community on the importance of early detection through an activity they are passionate about.

    Most people chose to Rally through golf or tennis. However the program is easily adaptable to other activities such as, bridge, bunco, mahjong and other fitness pursuits like yoga, spinning and swimming. In the United States, a woman has a one in eight chance of developing breast cancer in her lifetime. That is one out of eight mothers, wives, daughters, sisters, friends, co-workers, community members. When detected early, before it spreads beyond the breast, the five-year survival rate is 98%. These figures underscore the importance of early detection, which can only happen when women are aware of what they must do on a regular basis.
