October is here! With it comes the oranges, yellows and browns of the changing leaves, the orange and black of spooky Halloween decorations, and, of course, the giant wave of pink that accompanies Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
If you're looking for a great way to help in the fight against breast cancer, one great idea comes from the Illinois Lottery.
Spoiler Alert: You get to have a little fun, could win big bucks and get to support breast cancer research, education and awareness in Illinois! All three—research, education and awareness—are key to making sure women diagnosed with breast cancer survive the terrible disease.
The Illinois Lottery's Carolyn Adams Ticket for the Cure instant ticket gives you the chance to win big, while knowing that 100 percent of the profits from these lottery tickets are used to support the fight against breast cancer in Illinois. You can learn about some of the organizations that have benefited from Ticket for the Cure on the Illinois Lottery website.
As an added bonus, you could win up to $50,000 playing the Ticket for the Cure!
Since 2006, the Illinois Lottery has raised more than $11 million for breast cancer awareness, education and research through #TicketForTheCure.
One in eight American women is diagnosed with breast cancer, making this disease the most common cancer affecting women outside of skin cancer. Almost everyone knows someone — a mother, a sister, a friend — who has been impacted in some way. It could happen to any of us, which makes it so important to keep supporting the cause for the cure.
Together we can make a difference toward ending this disease by supporting the fighters and survivors in our lives. So let's continue to make that difference!
As the Illinois Lottery tagline says, "Every Play Is A Win Against Breast Cancer." We agree.
Remember to play responsibly! You must be 18 or older to play. Purchase a Carolyn Adams Ticket for the Cure at your local Illinois Lottery retailer or learn more on the Illinois Lottery's website.
