2019 Against the Tide Results

2019 Against the Tide Results


Dear Friends,

Thank you for your contribution to the 2019 Against the Tide event, held in Hopkinton on Saturday, June 15th. It is because of your support, passion, and dedication that the money raised for the Against the Tide event so far is $72,679 with more fundraising dollars still coming in! When passionate individuals join together for a common cause, 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 27th. You can also mail your pledges or donations directly to MBCC: PO Box 202, Franklin, MA 02038.

We invite you to join us at the 20th annual Cape Cod Against the Tide to be held at DCR’s Nickerson State Park in Brewster, MA on August 17th.

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
