In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’re highlighting MERGE4 collaborator, Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC.) B4BC is a non-profit foundation with a triple focused mission to:
- Prepare young people with education on early detection.
- Promote the importance of maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle as the best means of breast cancer prevention.
- Provide survivor support for those affected by breast cancer.
B4BC tackles their mission through year-round grass roots, youth focused lifestyle events with their Educational Outreach Experience, Prevention + Awareness Fundraising Events, and Survivorship Programs.
B4BC has educated over 1,000,000 young people on how to give themselves a breast exam and about the importance of early detection and a healthy lifestyle. They work with and give back to like-minded organizations to help with fund raising and research advancements and have awarded over 200 grants to young breast cancer patients and survivors to attend Chasing Sunshine Wellness Retreats.
MERGE4 has been lucky enough to collaborate with B4BC on a sock design that helps support the foundation and is fused with the high performance MERGE4 tech that helps support the active lifestyles that B4BC promotes. The sock is features MERGE4’s ‘cult weave’ that keeps graphics from ‘blowing out’ when stretched or worn, light graduated compression, ‘stay-put’ cuffs, padded soles, and elastic arch supports to keep you feeling good all day long.
To shine a light on some of the amazing education work that B4BC does, we wanted to share their tips for early detection. Follow along with..
