Fox Den Partners with Komen Knoxville
Since 2007, our membership has been helping in the fight against breast cancer by raising and donating money to Komen Knoxville. The goal of Fox Den for a Cure has always been to help the people of Knoxville by promoting the prevention of cancer through screening and assisting with support of those diagnosed with breast cancer. Our community events include: Fox Den for a Cure Silent Auction & Dinner Dance, Volley for a Cure Tennis Round Robin Tournament, Junior Tennis Pro-Am, Spin for a Cure, Swim for a Cure and the Fox Den Village Neighborhood Walk. Since its inception in 2007, Fox Den members and supporters have contributed $309,363 to Komen Knoxville. Seventy-five percent of the money we donate is used in our local area for screening and support of East Tennessee breast cancer patients. The remaining 25% goes to research on a national level.
