The NWA Metsquerade METAribbon Challenge is a way for women and men throughout the country to raise funds for metastatic breast cancer treatment research. There is not one individual or organization that can claim to do everything in the search for better treatment options, which is why it will take a collaborative effort from as many people and organizations as possible. The NWA Metsquerade hopes to grow the challenge to include as many participants as necessary to raise enough funds to help make metastatic breast cancer a manageable chronic illness instead of a terminal one.
Challengers are set up with their own fundraising page through Metavivor, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, that uses 100% of donations for metastatic breast cancer research treatments. Challengers are given the freedom to fundraise however they feel comfortable. The NWA Metsquerade has seen challengers do Facebook posts, e-mail, phone, or message friends and family, and even do smaller fundraisers. One challenger took it to the next level and did an interview with a television station to get the word out about her goal to raise $5,000.
