Single Jingles advocates for men to conduct self-examinations once a month to discover signs of testicular cancer and prevent long-term harm, through materials including shower cards, educational brochures, and on the organization's website. Testicular self-exam shower cards hang in the shower and remind men to perform the simple procedure once a month. Single Jingles would like to distribute 1,600 educational shower cards to central Texas health centers, but the organization requires additional funding to accomplish this goal.

Running in heels is usually a hassle, but at the annual Stiletto Stampede, it’s a sport. There, women sprint 100 yards in their favorite stilettos, or even, as one past participant did, in chunky platforms with breast cancer awareness’s pink ribbon drawn on the heel. The event benefits breast cancer research and awareness. The Survivor Stampede, for example, is for breast cancer survivors, while the Boot Scoot is for racers in cowboy boots, rather than boots that have recently become self-aware.
