Help Kick Breast Cancer to the Curb

There are lots of ways to help the cause – shopping included.

Breast cancer awareness is the first step to finding a cure for this terrible disease. It’s easy for you to make a difference, whether it is a donation, purchasing related products, or volunteering your time and talents. Donating to the National Breast Cancer Foundation or the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) are options, as well as connecting with a local nonprofit for the same cause. Fore Her is holding an event at our center on November 3rd at 1PM called the Pink Walk and your participation will help benefit those affected with Breast Cancer in our area! Besides those wonderful options, you can also purchase certain products that give back a certain percentage to the cause. Here are some you can find here at Destin Commons.
