If you’re interested, you have until this Thursday at 11:59 AM to do the following:

(2)    Click the “Join this Group” button and, when prompted, enter the password: May18.
(3)    Create your bracket. Make your picks.
(4)    Make your donation here. We suggest $5, but more is of course welcome. On the donation page, click the box next to “Yes, this donation is in honor of…” New text will appear underneath that box. Beside “Honor Gift Type” select “In honor of”. Beside “Honoree Name/Occasion” type: “KYP Bracket Challenge.” Fill out the rest of the information as directed on the site.

The top 3 finishers in the competition for the mens and womens tournament, both of which will be hosted on ESPN’s web site, will receive two prizes: one from Komen and a donation made to Komen in the winner’s name. Don’t forget – the grand prize winner of the challenge will receive a round-trip ticket on American Airlines!
