2015 MBCC Statewide Swim, Kayak, Walk, or Run Event


The Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) will be holding its annual, statewide Against the Tide swim, kayak, walk, and/or run fundraising events again in 2015. The morning events consist of several components: competitive and recreational swims, recreational kayak, recreational walk, and competitive and recreational runs. Participants of all ages and abilities can choose 1, 2, or 3 of these exciting activities. The event also offers an Aquathon “Splash and Dash” component, where participants “splash” in the competitive 1-mile swim and immediately “dash” in the competitive 5K or 10K run (chosen by the participant).

Participants may register as an individual or as part of a team, and are encouraged to fundraise $175 ($100, if a team member). All proceeds support the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition. The statewide Metro-Boston Against the Tide will be held for the 23rd year at DCR's Hopkinton State Park on Saturday, June 20th and will start at 7:00am and end at 12:00 noon. Please visit www.mbcc.org/swim or call 617-376-MBCC (6222) for more information and to register.
