This is the 5th year we are supporting “Sail for the Cure” on Sunday, September 26. This is the on-the-water version of the running race, where 65+ boats regatta on the Columbia River on behalf of pledges made for Breast Cancer Research and Cure. The Susan G. Komen non-profit sponsors this event. Our boat for this year is Escape Artist, which has been a high producer for the last five years in a row.
Breast cancer can occur in both men and women, but it is far more common in women. If you are interested in donating a pledge of (any amount, but let’s say, start thinking at $10…) to sponsor our effort, we will sail on your behalf, or on the behalf of a loved one who is a loving memory, or a survivor, or even a friend or neighbor. We can take their name out on the water and fly it from our rigging.
Breast Cancer is survivable, if addressed early and properly. Call the clinic to ask me about this and we’ll call you back and tell you more, or ask me at your next appointment! Ask soon!
