  • Mission:
  • Boarding For Breast Cancer (B4BC) is a nonprofit, youth-focused education, awareness and fundraising foundation whose mission is to increase awareness about breast cancer, the importance of early detection and the value of an active lifestyle.

  • History:
  • Founded in 1996, the inspiration for Boarding For Breast Cancer was a young woman named Monica Steward. Monica started her battle with breast cancer at the age of 26 and passed two years later from complications that arose from the disease. Boarding For Breast Cancer was founded as a result of Monica voicing her frustration about the lack of awareness among young women about the disease to friends and future co-founders, Tina Basich, Shannon Dunn, Lisa Hudson and Kathleen Gasperini.

    Their idea was to create an event that centered around their mutual passions, snowboarding and music, to communicate the message of awareness while raising money for research and educating young women about breast cancer. Monica Steward passed away a month later, just three months before her inaugural Boarding For Breast Cancer Snowboard + Music Festival event.

    Boarding For Breast Cancer has since grown its role in the community to include several national outreach programs that teach positive health practices to a wider age range to assist in detection and prevention of breast cancer. By reaching out to young audiences in the community, Boarding For Breast Cancer has been able to create a platform for discussion surrounding a private, but crucial topic on the importance of early detection and the value of a healthy, active lifestyle.
