What is a BigWig?
The 2020 BigWigs campaign engages local corporate and community leaders as representatives in the fight against breast cancer. Each BigWig will raise or give a minimum of $1500, which will be used to ensure access to essential breast health services and education programs, and support research to find the cures for breast cancer. Through this program, 75 percent of funds raised remain in local communities to help fund local breast cancer initiatives.
