What is a BigWig?
The BigWigs campaign engages local corporate and community leaders as representatives in the fight against breast cancer. During the monthlong campaign, each BigWig will raise or give a minimum of 2,000, which will be used to ensure access to essential breast health services, breast cancer patient financial assistance, and support research to find the cures for breast cancer. Through this program, up to 75 percent of net funds raised remain in local communities to help fund local breast cancer assistance.
