Hammond School to host a Rally for the Cure event

Hammond School is hosting a Rally for the Cure®   round robin, silent auction, and contests on Dec 04, 2010.  Rally for the Cure is a grassroots program to spread awareness about breast health and breast cancer in support of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® through volunteer organized golf, tennis and social events. More than 1.65 million people have participated in Rally for the Cure events across the nation since its inception in 1996. This year marks the second year Hammond School has rallied against breast cancer.

Hammond School is registering participants for the Rally event and invites the public to take part.  The day’s activities will be two levels of round robins open to all adults and juniors, a silent auction, contests for prizes, and lunch.   Prizes will be awarded to the winner of the event and each participant will receive a goody bag with important Komen breast health information and other Rally items plus a subscription to a select Condé Nast magazines such as SELF, Golf Digest and Bon Appétit.

 "We are proud to open our facility and host a Rally for the Cure event. The event is a fun way for us to bring together our tennis teams, staff and the community to support an important cause while playing a sport they are passionate about," states  Bernie McGuire, Varsity Boys’ & Girls’ Tennis Coach at Hammond School.

The mission of Rally for the Cure is to empower people to join the fight against breast cancer by providing a platform for them to educate their family, friends and community on the importance of early detection through an activity they are passionate about.

"The success of Rally is attributed to volunteer ambassadors like, Bernie, who have said ‘Yes we can have a Rally at our school’. It is their enthusiasm, energy and support we value in our commitment to support Susan G. Komen," says Diane Perillo, Program Manager, Rally for the Cure.

Since 1996 Komen has received over $50 million from Rally events to support their mission. Rally for the Cure® is based in Wilton, Connecticut. For further information about the Hammond School Rally event, contact Bernie @ or to host a Rally event of your own call 800.327.6811 or visit the website:
