You don’t have to be a scientist or doctor to help end breast and ovarian cancer. Every contribution counts — no matter how big or small.
Here are three ways you can make a positive impact on the advancement of scientific research for ovarian and breast cancer, and help educate more women to be fearless self-advocates.
1. Run a 5K
Not only is exercise one of the best ways to lower your risk of cancer, but participating in a 5K that supports breast and/or ovarian cancer research is a win-win. You get the health benefits of training for and running the race AND your race fees support critical cancer research.
2. Host a Fundraiser
Running not your thing? Host a donation-based spin, yoga or dance class to get your sweat on and help raise money for a charitable cause. Or steal one of these other fundraising event ideas to do something you love while supporting a cause you’re passionate about (we’re fans of pie parties and bake sales, especially if we get to be taste-testers).

3. Throw a CanCan Party
Throwing a CanCan party is an easy way to make sure your best girlfriends, family members, and the women in your community are educated about their bodies and are fearless self-advocates for their health. Through our fun, frank parties, you’ll have the tools for early detection, prevention, and self-advocacy. Gather a group of ladies over mimosas, taco night, or desserts for some boob (and ovary) talk.
