Gear it for the Girlz was started in 2015 with 3 friends riding and raising money. Our team has grown and in 2020 the virtual ride year, we had 25 riders on the west coast. This is the first time we will have an east coast Gear it for the Girlz. My daughter Danielle, Philip and I will be joined by friends on the east coast to experience a coast to coast tour de pink.
There are more than 250,000 survivors who were diagnosed with breast cancer before age 40 living in the U.S. today. They are navigating an already permanently altered life after cancer now compounded by COVID-19.
We have made the exciting decision to participate as a team in YSC Virtual Tour de Pink this year to raise funds to support them through the Young Survival Coalition (YSC).
We each have our own reasons for joining in this effort, but we are all committed to supporting Young Survival Coalition. YSC is the largest nonprofit dedicated exclusively to young adults diagnosed with breast cancer age 40 and under and their co-survivor support networks. Through educational resources and programming, annual conferences, and local and online support networks, YSC ensures no young adult faces breast cancer alone. For more information, visit youngsurvival.org.
