Cape Cod Against The Tide Event

By Charlotte Robinson, August 12, 2015
The statewide Cape Cod Against the Tide swim, kayak, walk or run fundraising event will be held for the 16th year DCR's Nickerson State Park in Brewster, MA on Saturday, August 15th to support the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) which was founded by a group of lesbian women in 1991. Proceeds benefit MBCC, which is Massachusetts’s leading breast cancer organization that seeks to understand the causes of breast cancer in order to find ways to prevent the disease. Director Cheryl Osimo, MBCC's Executive Director & Co-Founder of Silent Spring Institute stated, "We are very fortunate to have such tremendous support from citizens of Massachusetts demanding greater protection of their children's future health in our effort to stop breast cancer before it starts. MBCC often is overshadowed by larger, national breast cancer organizations & messages of early detection, treatment & finding a cure. We depend on our generous media & supporters to continue our unique goal of breast cancer prevention”. Participants may register as an individual or as part of a team & are encouraged to raise $175 or $100 per team member. All proceeds support the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition. There is still time participate on the beach at Nickerson State Park. Online Registration is open till Friday, August 14th at Noon & Walk-in Registrations is welcome the morning of the event as well.
