B4BC Check One, Two Campus Tour

CHECK ONE, TWO™ CAMPUS OUTREACH TOUR

The Check One, Two Campus Tour posts up on college campuses coast to coast each Fall to provide peer-to-peer communication and education on how to reduce your breast cancer risk. Students receive “coaching” on methods of early detection and have an opportunity to experience what a “lump feels like” through the use of life-like jelly breast molds. Students also can test their “Breast & Health Knowledge” and win prizes with a Q&A game session designed to help identify fact from fiction, dispel common myths, and prompt a conversation about health practices conducive to a young person’s daily life.

B4BC BOARDING SCHOOLS

The B4BC Boarding School brings to life the pioneering spirit of our founders by introducing a program that fosters sisterhood, philanthropy, leadership, and healthful practices centered around a love or interest in board sports. The program, set to roll out in Winter 2013, incorporates a facilitated peer counseling and mentoring curriculum that addresses important issues and pressures faced by a young female demographic, as well as a focus on positive health habits. B4BC is currently seeking founding partners for this model program for middle school and high school girls that can be expanded as a community-service in partnership with city recreation programs, allowing girls greater and continued access to the program overall.

BE HEALTHY. GET ACTIVE. RIDE! CAMPAIGN

The Be Healthy. Get Active. Ride! campaign, featuring B4BC’s Team Riders, was created to encourage girls (and guys) everywhere to get out and ride in support of B4BC’s mission to promote a healthy, active lifestyle. Studies show that poor diet and lack of exercise can increase the risk for breast cancer and other chronic diseases so B4BC hopes to inspire kids to take charge of their health and participate in board sports and other fun outlets for prevention. The campaign rolls out in Fall 2012 and will continue to drive year-round awareness of B4BC’s prevention programs like board-a-thons, B4BC Boarding Schools and educational content initiatives.
