Community Leader Takes on Breast Cancer

Cheryl Osimo and John ManoogAttorney John C. Manoog III has served as a leader in the Cape Cod community for many years. Over the past two years he has generously donated to the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition’s (MBCC) statewide Against the Tide fundraiser as a premiere sponsor on behalf of his law offices. MBCC is honored to present Attorney Manoog with an award of appreciation at this year’s Cape Cod Against the Tide event on August 17th.

“You simply cannot choose a tougher foe than cancer, and there is no easy path toward defeating a disease as devastating as breast cancer,” says Manoog. “We commend the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition for taking on this deadly opponent, and we are proud to support the Against the Tide effort.”

After representing countless injured parties over the years, Attorney Manoog is working to help MBCC achieve the goal of preventing cancer before it can be diagnosed. 

MBCC Executive Director Cheryl Osimo explains, “John Manoog and his entire staff are true humanitarians. I am deeply grateful to John for his commitment to helping us work toward our goal of breast cancer prevention. It means so much to us that such a well-known entrepreneur and attorney in Cape Cod and the state is supporting MBCC. His passion and generosity in helping change the legacy of breast cancer deserve to be celebrated.”

The Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition is the only education and advocacy non-profit in the country working closely with an environmental research organization toward breast cancer prevention. The annual Against the Tide events generate funds towards this goal and MBCC’s work in community education, research advocacy, and public policy change. The morning events consist of a 1-mile swim, 2-mile kayak, 3-mile walk, 5K run, and 10K run. Participants may choose one or more of the activities in any combination. There will also be a “splash and dash” aquathlon option where participants first “splash” in the competitive 1-mile swim and then, “dash” in the competitive 5K or 10K run. Each year, this family-friendly event brings individuals from all demographics and all abilities together with one goal in mind: breast cancer prevention.

The 14th annual Cape Cod Against the Tide event will be held at DCR’s Nickerson State Park, Flax Pond on August 17th in Brewster, MA. Learn more online at www.mbcc.org/swim.
