Beefy is an English Bulldog who spreads laughter and smiles on the streets of New York City daily as he skateboards by. He was recently featured on the hit summer reality show “Dogs in the City” on CBS, and his cute face has been used for Jimmy Choo and Clarks Shoes ads. Beginning July 18, 2012, Beefy will begin his nationwide tour in support of B4BC (Boarding for Breast Cancer), which promotes early detection + a healthy, active lifestyle as the best means of breast cancer prevention. He will skateboard at B4BC events, Music festivals, Pet Expos and skate parks in major cities across the US to raise money for breast cancer awareness, especially amongst girls in their teens and 20’s.
After Beefy’s Mom, Erin, was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 25, they have worked together to raise close to $20,000 for breast cancer causes and Beefy wants to put his popularity to use by creating fun family events around the country to encourage the nation to ‘Be Healthy. Get Active. Skate!’
On Beefy’s journey, we will create a documentary to share with all of his fans and increase breast cancer awareness. For more information about Beefy or how you can get involved, go to indiegogo/Beefy-Skates-The-Nation.
