Love Your Peaks!

Here, the peaks we’re talking about are on your chest! Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC) is a non-profit whose mission is to educate young people about early detection and the importance of healthy lifestyles in preventing Breast Cancer. Spearheaded by member Vanessa Diaz, in February they launched their winter campaign, Love Your Peaks, to encourage all of us to get outside and enjoy some mountain sports whether it be skiing, snowboarding or hiking. Did you know that 30 minutes of exercise, three or four times per week, can reduce cancer risk by up to 50%? We are so lucky in Los Angeles, surrounded by mountains, to walk, run or bike outside any time of year. They encourage any activity! Dedicate a day to move your body in honor of a loved one who has battled breast cancer. You can register and fundraise online and 100% of fees and donations benefit B4BC’s education, prevention and survivorship programs.
