Fundraising Challenge Raises Money For Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester

Challenge accepted. 

That’s what the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester's Executive Director Holly Anderson said after learning that a group of teachers at Spry Middle School -- challenged her to a friendly competition to raise the most money ahead of this weekend's Pink Ribbon Walk and Run.

Teacher Toni Lynn Swinson is the one who came up with the idea. She says she has been doing the Pink Ribbon Walk and Run for years, but this year wanted to try something a little different. 

After getting a group of women together and setting up the team page, Swinson says her goal was seeing if they could raise $2,000. 

So far they have raised over $2,500.... but have a little farther to go if they want to catch up to Anderson who has raised over $5,000 so far.

Swinson says win or lose the best part is being able to raise money for a great cause. "I know once we got people talking about this little challenge that it would bring in more money for the coalition, that was our biggest goal here."

Anderson says the amount raised will help so many women and men who walk through their doors. "It is all in good fun and I couldn't be happier to have such a wonderful competition going on."

The Pink Ribbon Walk and Run is this Sunday, Mother's Day, and it's not too late to sign up or donate!
