Breast Cancer Awareness at NIKA – Together We Are Stronger
Did you know that breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women in the United States? Each year, it is estimated that over 252,710 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,500 will die. Here at NIKA, we want to help change that.
This October, we once again partnered with the Susan G. Komen Foundation to raise funds for breast cancer awareness and research, as well as provide funding support for those facing this all too common disease. This year, NIKA staff donated a total of $7,531, which was matched by NIKA corporate for a total donation of $15,062, beating last year’s fundraiser by more than 40%!
In addition to our fundraiser, we’ve been “thinking pink” with a calendar full of themed activities, giveaways, and commemorations designed to raise awareness and show all people affected by this disease how much we care. Thank you to all who donated and participated – we know that TOGETHER, WE ARE STRONGER!
