Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
This August thousands of women and men will come together in an amazing display of courage and commitment. They'll walk 60 miles over the course of three days, each raising $2,300 or more to fight breast cancer. As participants cover the mileage on foot, volunteers help along the way. As evening approaches, the walkers come home to an amazing camp, complete with sleeping tents, hot meals, showers, medical services and everything they need to rest up safely for the next day's journey. Our participants are not fundraising experts. They're not athletes. They're ordinary people who've been inspired to make a difference. Eighty-five percent of the net proceeds from the twelve Breast Cancer 3-Days benefit Susan G. Komen For the Cure and 15 percent benefit the National Philanthropic Trust to fund crucial breast cancer research and community outreach programs.
