Last year, CME Group raised more than $260,000 to fight cancer through our Pink for a Purpose and Movember campaigns. We were overwhelmed by the support we received from our exchange community, and we look forward to building on last year’s results to fuel more life-saving cancer education and research through our partnerships with Bright Pink, Cancer Research UK and The Movember Foundation.
To jump start this year's effort, CME Group has donated $250,000 to be split between Bright Pink and Movember and $10,000 to Cancer Research UK. We are looking for your support, too. Please join the cause today and help us continue to improve and save lives for those suffering from and at risk of developing these devastating diseases.
CME Group's Pink for a Purpose campaign is a best in class integrated partnership. Not only do employees fundraise throughout the month to save women's lives, but they are becoming educated themselves. It takes $2.50 to educate a woman on her breast and ovarian health. With the support of the CME Group community, we can make real strides towards our goal of educating 500,000 women in 2016. We're honored to be working together with CME Group for another impactful October." — Lindsay Avner, Founder & CEO, Bright Pink
The Movember Foundation is proud to be supported by the amazing CME Group community. Through their participation, the men and women of CME have helped to raise funds, awareness and spark conversations about men's health. We are very appreciative of their amazing efforts that will empower men to live happier, healthier, longer lives." — Adam Garone, Co-Founder, The Movember Foundation

The vision of Cancer Research UK is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. Thanks to Cancer Research UK, every day there are more than 400 people diagnosed with cancer who will survive the disease for more than 10 years. They aim to increase survival rates to 3 in 4 within the next 20 years. Their efforts are focused in four key areas working to help prevent cancer, earlier diagnosis, development of new treatments, and optimizing current treatments by personalization and increasing effectiveness. Together, we will beat cancer sooner.
The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to helping men live happier, healthier, and longer lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the men's health movement, raising $650 million and funding more than 1,000 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health, and physical inactivity. The Movember campaign encourages participants to start the conversation around men’s health by growing a moustache or committing to being physically active for 30 days with the MOVE campaign. Both Mo Bros and Mo Sistas can take part.
