Breast Cancer Alliance Get Fit For Hope Challenge

May 17 @ 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM

$25

Help raise essential breast cancer care funding for the growing number of underserved women affected by the COVID-10 pandemic.

BCA’s Annual 5K Run/Walk for Hope is now “GET FIT FOR HOPE,” challenging you to exercise in the safety of your own home while raising essential breast cancer care funding for the growing number of underserved women affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Screening mammographies are on hold, neoadjuvant (pre-surgical therapies) are being offered in place of surgery until hospitals are better and more safely prepared to handle non-COVID patients and immunocompromised patients going through chemotherapy have an added layer of fear when they go for their sessions.

1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime and 1 in 833 men. Raising money for these critical health care needs is vital. BCA’s GET FIT FOR HOPE CHALLENGE is an easy and impactful way you and your family can do something good for your own health while making an important impact on the healthcare of others.
