TEMPE, Ariz., Feb. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Local businesses and the Change Your Game! Foundation will rally efforts to benefit breast cancer research and the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Phoenix Affiliates on Saturday, March 6th, 2010 beginning at 8:30am.

"Change Your Game!

A tremendous amount of support is coming in from local businesses such as Dixon Golf and Alphagraphics (Elliot Rd. and Kyrene). The Kids Zone event will include a Games2U mobile gaming theater and mobile laser tag, bounce zone, a woodshop experience and sports clinics instructed by college athletes. A mobile mammogram unit will be onsite, at Tempe Marketplace, with a limited number of mammograms being sponsored to uninsured and under-insured women.

The Change Your Game! Foundation partnered with Disney Parks and Hands On Greater Phoenix taking advantage of Disney's "Give a Day. Get a Disney Day" promotion. So far, the event has rallied over 300 volunteer submissions with interest in supporting the ongoing fight against breast cancer. The Change Your Game!
