Last year we were all shocked when Amy was diagnosed with breast cancer. It often left us feeling helpless but, as a team of family and friends, we got through it. This year, we made the decision to do something big to take back control and celebrate beating cancer!
We’ve made an exciting commitment to participate as a team in the YSC Tour de Pink, a 3-day bike ride for breast cancer. It’s a huge challenge for all of us, but together, we know that we can do it!
We each have our own reasons for joining in this effort, but we are all committed to supporting Young Survival Coalition, the largest nonprofit dedicated exclusively to young adults diagnosed with breast cancer age 40 and under and their co-survivor support networks.
Tour de Pink is much more than just a bike ride, it’s a chance to honor survivors, raise awareness that young adults can and do get breast cancer, and to come together as a supportive community.
YSC serves over 8,000 people each year with support and education to be their best health advocate throughout all stages of breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, and long-term survivorship. YSC also educates and influences the medical, research and legislative communities to address breast cancer in young adults. Through educational resources and programming, annual conferences, and local and online support networks, YSC ensures no young adult faces breast cancer alone.

All three-day riders are required to raise $3,000 for Tour de Pink. We have set our goals high!
Because we are working as a team, with your help, we know that we can do it. Please support us today.
