About us:

It is the mission of the Give Cancer the Boot Foundation to provide financial assistance to a family suffering from breast cancer. Our half marathon and 5K during Breast Cancer Awareness Month will raise awareness for our donation drive.

Why we do it:

  • 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime (Susan G. Komen Foundation)

  • Breast cancer costs $23,000-$62,000 to treat annually with insurance (National Cancer Institute)

  • In addition to medical costs, families lose income due to lost wages and increased child care costs (breastcancer.org)

  • Cancer patients are 2.7 times more likely than the average person to file for bankruptcy (National Cancer Institute)
