WATERVILLE VALLEY, New Hampshire (January 28, 2019) – Boarding For Breast Cancer (B4BC) will return to Waterville Valley for the 12th year in a row on February 2nd-3rd. This is the longest running B4BC event. Over the past 11 years, Waterville Valley has raised over $50,000 through this event.
The event features a rail jam on Sunday, February 3rd and a raffle with 100% of the proceeds going towards B4BC’s educational, prevention, and survivorship programs. Registration for the rail jam is $20 per person from 8-10am in the Base Lodge on Sunday, February 3rd. Raffle tickets can be purchased in the Sunroom of the Base Lodge all weekend long for $2 each, or 6 for $10. Raffle winners will be drawn on Sunday, February 3rd at 3pm. Prizes include helmets, outerwear, snowboards, skis, and more! Raffle participants do not need to be present to win.
“My mother is a breast cancer survivor. She’s been cancer free for over a decade now. That coupled with my love of the industry and snowboarding, I felt like B4BC was a cause we as a whole industry need to support,” said Jamie Cobbett, Waterville Valley Resort’s Marketing Operations Manager. To help contribute to the event, look for Pam Turner, who is also a breast cancer survivor. She'll be located in the Base Lodge wearing a giant, fancy hat. Every year Pam raises anywhere from $4-5k in the two days during this event and is single handedly our top fundraiser.
Boarding 4 Breast Cancer (B4BC) is a non-profit, youth-focused education, awareness, and fundraising foundation. B4BC’s mission is to increase awareness about breast cancer, the importance of early detection and the value of an active lifestyle.
