2017 Against the Tide Results

2017 Against the Tide Results


Dear Friends,

Thank you for your contribution to the 2017 Against the Tide event, held in Hopkinton this past Saturday, June 17th. It is because of your support, passion, and dedication that the money raised for the Against the Tide events so far is $103,911 with more fundraising dollars coming! When passionate individuals join together for a common cause, as you did on June 17th, we can envision a better world for our children, grandchildren, and future generations.

Thanks to our volunteers, athletes, participants and sponsors, Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) can continue to educate our communities about the environmental links to breast cancer while dispelling myths and misconceptions about the realities of this epidemic. With your support, we can continue to advocate for greater research and additional changes to public policy in order to move toward our goal of breast cancer prevention. The more money we raise, the more people we can reach. We remind you that fundraising pages will remain open and accepting pledges until September 30th for both the Against the Tide Hopkinton and Against the Tide Brewster event, to be held on August 19th. You can also mail your pledges or donations directly to MBCC: PO Box 202, Franklin, MA 02038.

On behalf of Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition staff and Board of Directors, thank you for your courage to not just envision a brighter future, but to help promote positive change. Together we will continue to work towards a healthier world for future generations.

With heartfelt thanks and appreciation,


Cheryl Osimo
Executive Director
