Team Genesis

This year we are giving you the opportunity to be part of Team Genesis.

Working closely with RAGs means that together, we can fund vital research into the prediction and prevention of breast cancer. Throughout our partnership our Genesis Student Team will be on hand to offer fundraising advice and help support your RAGs future development.

Team Genesis

To be part of Team Genesis we are asking for your RAG (Raise and Give Society) to raise a minimum of £7,500 throughout your academic year.

The perks of being part of Team Genesis:
Personal Development:

Priority access to internship – every year we take on a student intern who we invite to take on a three-month internship at Genesis*

Employability workshops and guides for a career in the Third Sector


Here at Genesis we know how hard fundraising can be so this is why we think your amazing efforts should be rewarded.

For everyone in Team Genesis we pledge to:

Help with local press coverage of your fundraising events

Your RAG will be listed as a partner on our website

We will write to your Vice-Chancellor outlining the dedication you’ve shown

You will be invited to an exclusive RAG thank you evening where you will get the chance to meet The Genesis Team, as well as our researchers and see, first hand, how the funds raised will be used.

How can you capitalise on your fundraising?

Get your story picked up by university, local and national press. For PR tips and tricks check out our Make us Famous Challenge.

Sport and Challenge Events 
Calling all RAGs

Are you up for a challenge? Are you bubbling over with a creative mind that we could put to good use? Maybe you see yourself as a future Alan Sugar? Or maybe you’re ready to make your own mark on the world, whilst supporting a brilliant cause?

Then we need you!

Here at Genesis, we need your help in making our charity a household name, synonymous with breast cancer prevention, and quite frankly, all things wonderful. When people hear the phrase ‘breast cancer charity’, we want to be their first thought.

We already feel as through we make a real difference, but we need your help in shouting this from the rooftops. Why be a national charity, when with your help, we be could international?

But how I hear you ask?

From the sedate and sophisticated, to the weird, wacky and wonderful, whatever floats your boat, and will get our charity recognised.

Together we can make breast cancer a preventable disease for the next generation.

The Basics – How the Challenge Works?

Pick your challenge

Start Local and then think big – contact your university newspaper and radio. Move on to local press and radio and then aim for the big boys like the Guardian or Telegraph, BBC Radio.

And help us raise vital funds for breast cancer prevention.


If at any point you need help please do not hesitate to get in touch with a member of the Genesis Team by email who are always on hand to offer support and advice.

Charity Collections

2016 marks Genesis’ 20th Anniversary and in celebration we will be hosting a MegaRAID.
