MBCC Against the Tide 2013

Dear Friend, I am writing to you on behalf of the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC), the largest breast cancer organization in Massachusetts. MBCC is a statewide, grassroots organization that challenges all obstacles to the eradication of breast cancer through community education and advocating for policies and programs that will remove chemical causes of breast cancer from our environment. We work towards the goal of preventing breast cancer before it starts. We are reaching out to you with the hope that you will help us communicate with your friends and family about our upcoming statewide Against the Tide events. The annual events include a one-mile competitive or recreational swim, two-mile kayak, three-mile walk, and 5K or 10K run. We are also featuring a “Splash & Dash” Aquathlon event, consisting of the competitive one-mile swim and your choice of a competitive 5K or 10K run. Participants can choose to participate in one, two, or three of these events. This year, Against the Tide will be held on August 17th at DCR’s Nickerson State Park in Brewster, MA. We would appreciate your support in passing along the Against the Tide poster (attached), to your friends and family so they are aware of the event. We would also like to invite all of you to participate in Against the Tide individually or as a team. If you are unable to participate, please consider making a pledge to an existing team. You can visit www.mbcc.org/swim for more information, to register, or to make a pledge. We do not rely on any funds raised by participants to promote or advertise our events. Instead, we rely on the generosity of people like you to help us spread the word throughout Massachusetts. MBCC would greatly appreciate any support you can provide us in working towards eliminating this devastating disease. I hope you will be able to support us in our efforts by spreading the word about Against the Tide, making a pledge, and participating one of the events. Sincerely, Cheryl Osimo Executive Director Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition 508-246-3047 www.mbcc.org
