Mammoth Mountain Raises Funds and Awareness for Boarding for Breast Cancer’s Year-Round Programs on Cinco de Mayo Weekend.
Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC) will be at Mammoth Mountain in California for Cinco de Mayo weekend, May 6th and 7th, for the Love Your Peaks series, presented by Suja Organic. B4BC’s Love Your Peaks is a winter event series and fundraising campaign to support breast cancer awareness and prevention at resorts nationwide. The Mammoth Mountain event will be the last stop for the organization’s winter event series.
Mammoth has had a record snowfall of more than 705 inches. B4BC is excited to have this event at the mountain during this epic extended season. With $115,000 raised so far, this is the last event of the winter season to help raise funds for B4BC’s programs.
Love Your Peaks participants will get outside in support of B4BC’s mission of a healthy and active lifestyle as the best means of preventing breast cancer while raising funds for the organization’s education, prevention, and survivorship programs. B4BC also promotes the importance of self-check breast exams and early detection.
“B4BC is grateful for our partners’ support in spreading our mission through events like Love Your Peaks. Join us at Mammoth Mountain to enjoy the mountains, support a great cause, and raise awareness for breast health education and early detection. Thank you to Mammoth Mountain and all partners for making this event possible.”
– Lisa Hudson, Co-Founder and President of Boarding for Breast Cancer
