The inaugural Boobie Bash Run/Walk/Benefit will raise money for breast cancer screenings for medically underserved women in Broward County. This free event will bring together our community for a 1.5 mile journey which begins/ends at Rumors Bar in Wilton Manors on Thursday, October 18 at 7pm. No preregistration is required.
Presented by Front Runners & Walkers Fort Lauderdale, South Florida’s largest Gay & Lesbian social running and walking group, the Boobie Bash will raise funds for the Broward Health Foundation’s Lisa Boccard Breast Cancer Fund. The Fund provides breast cancer screenings and treatment, if necessary, to women in our community. 100% of all money raised on October 18 will be donated to the Fund and all money stays local.
So, lace up your sneakers and don your festive pink attire on Thursday, October 18, for this casual walk/run in Wilton Manors, starting at Rumors Bar (2426 Wilton Drive) at 7pm.
A raffle will be held with a chance to win great prizes including a pair of P!NK concert tickets at the BB&T Center.
More about the cause:
The Lisa Boccard Breast Cancer Fund was founded in 2003 by Vincent and Terry Boccard in support of Vincent's sister Lisa and her fight with breast cancer. The mission of the Lisa Boccard Breast Cancer Fund is to provide funding for care that may otherwise be unattainable, for the women in our community to obtain screening mammograms and breast treatments if necessary. A women’s ability to receive a free breast treatment is not conditioned on her ordering any other item or service from Broward Health, or it’s Medical Staff.
The Lisa Boccard Fund has been fortunate over the years to benefit from many Community Partners. This has allowed us to screen over 2000 women of which over 90 have been identified with breast cancer. These women have received treatment and thankfully are still alive today. Together with our many partners, we hope to continue to educate, treat and heal many more women in our community.
