LBBC Volunteer Heroes
As volunteers, we unite with Living Beyond Breast Cancer year-round to provide trusted information and a community of support to people who are newly diagnosed, in treatment, post-treatment, and living with metastatic disease. It is our shared mission to ensure that no one affected by breast cancer feel uninformed or alone.
This season, we are uniting with Living Beyond Breast Cancer to celebrate its 20th Anniversary of Reach & Raise. Reach & Raise is not your typical fundraiser, as it replaces a run or walk with a yoga practice. We know that that power of yoga can inspire hope, elevate mindfulness, and build communities – all of which aligns with the mission at LBBC. This event is about more than yoga, it’s about supporting our community. Since its launch in 2001, Reach & Raise has raised more than $4 million to support the breast cancer community. We are proud to be supporting Living Beyond Breast Cancer and all those they support each day.
Our fundraiser will be dedicated to the Living Beyond Breast Cancer Fund, which is a financial assistance program to serve the national breast cancer community through one-time grants meant to help decrease financial burden. Breast cancer can be very expensive, especially for those with limited incomes. The COVID-19 crisis has created increased financial hardships for many people, including those with breast cancer. These grants can be used for living expenses such as mortgage, rent, utilities, and car payments.
Last year, our team raised over $10,000, and we plan to reach this goal again – but we need your help! Every dollar counts. Please support our team with a donation today and consider joining us on Sunday, May 16 for Reach & Raise.
