June/August Mass. Breast Cancer Coalition events

Against the Tide: Breast Cancer events
Posted on 05/01/2020

MBCC’s statewide Against the Tide events will be held on Saturday, June 20th at Hopkinton State Park and on Saturday, August 15th in Brewster at Nickerson State Park. These inspiring events are great ways for students to become active members of their community and support a cause that impacts many Massachusetts families.

Opportunities to volunteer include the following:
Volunteer for Against the Tide the day before, the day of, or both. Volunteer opportunities include:
Assisting with event set-up and/or take down
Participating as a walk guide, run guide, swim guide, or paddle board guide
Helping hand out water to event participants
And more!
Volunteer long-term to help promote Against the Tide events by joining a combined junior high, high school, and college student committee promoting MBCC’s annual, statewide Against the Tide multisport event. This opportunity will only require roughly 3 hours of students’ time each month and has multiple components they can take part in:
Adopting a town near where they live and posting Against the Tide posters throughout the months leading up to the event
Assist with social media marketing
Helping with event outreach and volunteer recruitment
Committee members are required to volunteer at a minimum of one Against the Tide event (Hopkinton 6/20/20 or Brewster 8/15/20)
MBCC is dedicated to preventing environmental causes of breast cancer through community education, research advocacy, and public policy changes. Students’ support as active volunteers and/or committee members will help change the impact of breast cancer on generations to come.

Students interested in volunteering and/or becoming a committee member, should email MBCC’s Executive Director, Cheryl Osimo, at [email protected] and college committee chair, Charles McGinn, at [email protected]
