Hometown Press Release
"Hometown Press Release 1" is for those who are walking to support continued breast cancer research and care. "Hometown Press Release 2" specifies that funding will benefit both breast and gynecologic cancers. Please click the appropriate link and describe your motivation for participating and your dedication to ending cancer. Personalize the release of your choice and send it to your local newspaper.
Be sure to include your name in the article. This allows people you don’t know to donate to you via your Personal Page. The "Instructions" document explains how to fill out the Hometown Press Release.
Do you want to invite your community to attend your own fundraising event for The Weekend? Click the "Fundraising Advisory" document above, to open a media advisory template that will alert those in your area about your fundraiser. Personalize the advisory and send it to your local newspaper’s community calendar section. If the newspaper does not have a community calendar section, send the advisory to the general news or news tips email address.
Be sure to include your name, so those who are unable to attend can still donate to you via your Personal Page. The "Instructions" document explains how to fill out the Fundraising Advisory.
Good luck with your Hometown Press campaign, and please let Ailish Steele at firstname.lastname@example.org know if your story makes the news!
