Many cancer organizations are founded by the family of someone touched by cancer. Recently I came across an organization that was founded by co-workers of someone who lost his battle with cancer.
In 2007, the co-founder of the marketing company Small Army, Mike Connell passed away from cancer. After witnessing Mike’s heroic, two year fight, they were inspired to continue that fight in a way that would truly represent the boldness of Mike and his ideas. The Small Army for a Cause organization was born!
In 2009, Small Army for a Cause brought boldness to life with their 1st Annual Be Bold, Be Bald! event. Participants included sororities, fraternities, offices, and individual supporters all around the United States. The event raised nearly $100,000!
On October 22, 2010 we can all Be Bold, Be Bald again! When you sign up for this unique event, Small Army for a Cause mails you a bald cap and a t-shirt to wear during the day. You request donations from others to help support the cause. Supporters get to choose where their donation is sent. This year proceeds will benefit the following cancer research organizations: LiveStrong, the Jimmy Fund Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Prostate Cancer Foundation, and the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation.
