PADDLE WITH A PURPOSE
Every two minutes a woman in the U.S. is diagnosed with breast cancer. Nearly 1.7 million new cases were diagnosed worldwide in 2012, and incidence rates are on the rise. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is committed to preventing and curing breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research.
YOUR PARTICIPATION MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Help put breast cancer out of business by creating a personal fundraising page to share with family and friends. 91 cents of every dollar you raise will be spent on research and awareness programs. By choosing to fundraise for BCRF, you are choosing to be part of the solution and the cure. This year, a special award will be given to the TOP THREE INDIVIDUAL FUNDRAISERS and TOP TEAM FUNDRAISER!
TOGETHER WE CAN ACHIEVE A WORLD FREE OF BREAST CANCER
In five years, the Paddle for Pink event has raised more than $850,000, thanks to the herculean fundraising efforts of our participants. Together, the paddle board community has raised enough to provide funding for two BCRF-supported research grants. Join us in our goal of raising $250,000 this year to support a third!
