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.

BE HEALTHY. GET ACTIVE. RIDE! CAMPAIGN

Our 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, and sustainable lifestyle. Studies show that poor diet, lack of exercise, and engaging in the outdoors can increase the risk for breast cancer and other chronic diseases; B4BC’s intent is to inspire young people to take charge of their health and their environment and participate in board sports and other fun outlets for prevention. The campaign launched in Fall 2012 and continues to drive year-round awareness of B4BC’s board-a-thons and educational content initiatives like B4BC Basecamp.

In 2009, B4BC established the B4BC Survivorship Fund to connect breast cancer survivors with nature-based wellness and sustainability experiences that enhance their path of healing and long-term survivorship.
