Boarding for Breast Cancer Celebrates 25th Anniversary in October With Virtual and In-Person Events for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization providing breast cancer education, prevention, and survivor support programs, announces a month’s worth of fun-filled events and activities to celebrate its 25th anniversary and the Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.

One out of eight women will get breast cancer in her lifetime. Early detection and a healthy, active lifestyle are the best means of breast cancer prevention. “Just 30 minutes of exercise three to four days per week can reduce your cancer risk by thirty to fifty percent,” said Lisa Hudson, president, and co-founder of B4BC. “To celebrate our 25th anniversary, our entire global community is invited to participate in our virtual and in-person events including Skate The Coast, a 19-mile skate/ride down the California coast, our #BeHealthyGetActive awareness-raising social media campaign, and Chasing Sunshine Wellness Days to raise funds for B4BC’s education, prevention, and survivorship programs.”
