Welcome to Katie Carr Krauss's Page - 14th year riding!

Katie Krauss

I am riding again this year in YSC’s three-day 200+ ride in October to raise money for a fabulous organization dedicated to supporting the critical concerns and issues unique to young women and breast cancer. The home base of the ride this year is Princeton, NJ. We will ride primarily in NJ with a side detour to New Hope, PA and end at the Jersey shore. I am looking forward to a scenic (hopefully mostly flat and all rain-free) ride with friends and ending with another fabulous beach celebration on October 6th I am again asking your help to raise money for YSC in an effort to “break the cycle of breast cancer.”

Tour de Pink is much more than just a bike ride, it’s a chance to honor survivors, raise awareness, and support important programs for young women affected by breast cancer. I hope I can count on you to help me reach my fundraising goal!

Your donation will directly support Young Survival Coalition and ensure that no young woman faces breast cancer alone. YSC offers resources, connections and outreach so women feel supported, empowered and hopeful. YSC is the only national nonprofit that solely focuses on serving young women under the age of 40 affected by breast cancer. YSC serves over 8,000 women each year with support and education to be their best health advocate throughout all stages of breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, and long-term survivorship.

Cancer can be a very isolating disease, and especially so for a young woman who may still be finishing their education, starting a career, and building her romantic and family life. YSC’s supportive services include: in-person support groups around the country, online video support groups, one-on-one peer mentoring, creation and distribution of free educational materials for survivors, co-survivors and healthcare providers, a training program for survivors to amplify the need for expanded research and advocacy, and an annual conference called the YSC Summit. Read more about YSC here: youngsurvival.org

You can view YSC’s audited financials and annual reports online here: youngsurvival.org/who-we-are/financial-information

How will your donation help?

$25 could fund YSC materials at three healthcare providers’ offices.
$100 could provide a Newly Diagnosed Navigator to six women when they need it most.
$250 could allow us to train four survivors to serve as a peer supporters.
$500 could fund a survivor advocate in our RISE training program
$1,200 could pay for two young women to travel to the YSC Summit, an annual conference for young women affected by breast cancer and their co-survivors.

Any amount helps!

Thank you in advance for your support. I truly appreciate your generosity. Think of me and all of the other riders October 4th through October 6th as we pedal away for a terrific cause!
