September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Help us support women in the fight while raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer.  We will also be rolling out the teal carpet for some great events!

Put some Fun Into September “Fun”draising

You can help be the difference in the fight against ovarian cancer  by hosting you own fundraiser for Be The Difference Foundation.   Money that you raise will help support women in their fight against ovarian cancer.  Checkout some of our fun ideas below!

Host a Lemonade Stand


There are many ways to give back as we approach September, ovarian cancer awareness month. Hosting a teal lemonade stand would put a great cause behind an age-old fundraising favorite. With food coloring, or crystal light, the lemonade can be turned teal, and is sure to resonate with neighbors, supporters, and pedestrians alike. This is a great activity to involve kids!  Clearly communicate that the proceeds will be donated to Be the Difference Foundation, an organization dedicated to increasing survival for women battling ovarian cancer, and enjoy! 

Dog Wash


Consider fundraising with man’s best friend! This relatively inexpensive idea could be the talk of the town, or at least the neighborhood! Agree to wash a few dogs for a fixed price, and clearly communicate that the proceeds will be going to Be the Difference Foundation, an organization dedicated to increasing survival for women battling ovarian cancer. Pawesome!    

FUNdraise Your Way


For the month of September use your creativity and passion to take an active role by fundraising, donating or spreading awareness of Be The Difference Foundation and the fight against ovarian cancer cause by creating a fundraising page.  Use your fundraising page to set a goal for the month of September, and champion for women battling ovarian cancer. Grow a mustache, shave your head, play a video game, dance all day. Do your thing, just do it for a cause. Go ahead. Get creative! Do you love sports? Whether you’re running a marathon, skydiving for the first time, or anything in between, use your next sporting opportunity to raise funds & awareness for ovarian cancer!  We will provide you with the fundraising tools to set a goal and raise some money!
