OUR IMPACT & HISTORY

OVER $1M+ RAISED

Since 2012

A founding goal of funds raised by For the Girls is to keep the impact local which is why 80% of funds go towards local projects. However, without research, we can never solve the basic problem so a portion of proceeds are donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. For the Girls Norfolk is a 501(c)3 organization.

2013

For the Girls began in 2013 in Norfolk, NE with a small group of women, some survivors, some friends of the cause, but one goal. Our community of approximately 25,000 did not have any means of fellowship or support group for breast cancer survivors. There was also a lack of some services available locally for breast cancer care. Our idea was to have an annual fundraising event to educate women, raise money for services, and let survivors know they were not the only one facing these challenges.
