Fundraising for a Cause

It’s October, a time when communities nationwide “think pink” and rally to raise awareness about breast cancer, a disease that 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop in their lifetime. Sadly, over 40,000 women are estimated to die from breast cancer in 2015, but every year the death rate decreases as a result of treatment advances, early detection and increased awareness.

As advocates of this cause and long-time friends of the NFL, we proudly offer a special line of NFL Pink SpiritCups in support of the A Crucial Catch campaign, a partnership between the American Cancer Society and the NFL focusing on the importance of annual breast cancer screenings, especially in underserved communities. Because simply put, early detection saves lives.

Available in our traditional Catalog and Case programs, as well as online through our new e-store,, NFL Pink SpiritCups are available in all 32 teams with a percentage of every sale going back to support A Crucial Catch.


To help raise awareness for the A Crucial Catch campaign, throughout the month of October NFL players, coaches and referees will wear pink game apparel and stadiums will feature pink signage. And then much of this pink gear will be sold at NFL Auction with proceeds benefiting the American Cancer Society’s Community Health Advocates implementing Nationwide Grants for Empowerment and Equity (CHANGE), a program that provides breast cancer outreach, education and low or no cost screenings to underserved communities nationwide.

BRAX Partners with AmeriCheer, AmeriDance and Eastern!

To excel in the sports of cheer and dance takes “positive attitude, effort and dedication” – lessons learned at instructional camps and elite competitions offered for the past 30 years by some of the best in the industry – AmeriCheer, AmeriDance and Eastern Cheer and Dance.

As a proud fundraising supporter of cheer and dance gyms since 2005, it is with great pleasure that we announce the partnership between BRAX Fundraising and the AmeriCheer, AmeriDance and Eastern Cheer and Dance family of brands. Together we’ll help gyms raise the funds they need using the power and mass appeal of the NFL, MLB, over 100 top colleges and the U.S. Military!

“We’re extremely excited about our new relationship with AmeriCheer, AmeriDance and Eastern Cheer & Dance. Their camps and competitions are top-notch so it made a lot of sense for us to team up to bring programs specifically designed to help their cheer and dance groups offset or completely defer travel and attendance costs. We’re really looking forward to working with Liz and her team to provide funding solutions so these groups can focus on the tasks at hand – training and winning,” said Ryan Hedspeth, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for BRAX Fundraising.
