Raise A Racket


Since January 2011, Raise A Racket (RAR) has been a destination for those who are passionate about our mission to end HPV-related cancers.

On January 27th, 2024, along with our venue sponsor, Elysium Tennis, we hosted 150 guests for the 11th RAR fundraiser.

We CRUSHED our fundraising GOAL of $60,000 thanks to YOU!!

We raised $75K+ and are well on our way to CRUSHING CERVICAL CANCER!

In January, we make more noise than ever about cervical cancer and the fact it is preventable. By doing so we increase awareness of cervical cancer and HPV. Through our fundraising efforts and with your support, we give hope to many as they navigate their way through a cervical cancer diagnosis.

January is Cervical Health Awareness Month. We invite you to help us shine a light on the importance of prevention each January, but we also ask you to advocate alongside us every single day. Together we can save lives and eradicate cervical cancer!


On Saturday, January 25th, 2025 we’ll host RAR25 at Elysium Tennis!

In it’s 11th year, Raise A Racket (RAR) upheld its reputation to provide a fun and inclusive environment for adults 21 and older to raise money for educational programs and resources that are designed to protect our children and loved ones from receiving a cervical cancer diagnosis.

We are grateful to everyone who contributed to the success of RAR24 and to raising $75K+. Thanks to your generosity, our Patient Support Program will be in full force all year!  You can count on The Crawford Crew to expand our programs, assist more families and patients, and to make our supporters proud to be a member of our CREW!
