MBCC Against The Tide Fundraiser Event

By Charlotte Robinson, May 26, 2023
Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) is hosting its annual statewide Against the Tide athletic fundraising events as both in-person & virtual events next month. MBCC holds two in-person events that kicks off on Saturday June 17th at DCR’s Hopkinton State Park in Hopkinton, MA for the 31st year & then on Saturday August 12th at DCR’s Nickerson State Park in Brewster, MA for the 24th year. These events will feature 1-mile recreational or competitive swims, ½-mile recreational swim, 5K or 10K runs, 3-mile walk & a 1-mile USMS sanctioned swim. Cheryl Osimo, MBCC's Executive Director stated, "We are grateful to the many people who continue to support MBCC & we’re so encouraged by how well our virtual events were received by participants both locally & nationally in 2020, 2021 & 2022. In 2023, we hope that providing multiple virtual & in-person event options will give even more people a chance to be a part of the Against the Tide events to swim, walk & run in support of breast cancer prevention." The funds raised through Against the Tide helps to support & expand MBBC’s community education program Let’s Talk Prevention: Reducing Toxic Exposures, MBCC Webinar Series & the newly-expanded student environmental health program, Let’s Talk Prevention: Actions You Can Take. Registration for the virtual is $20 per event & in-person options is $40 for an individual participant per event. MBCC is the leading breast cancer organization dedicated to preventing the environmental causes of breast cancer through community education, research advocacy & changes to public policy.
