Unfortunately, I’m sure we all know someone who has been affected by breast cancer, or cancer in general. In an attempt to help and in honor of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we have decided to hold an annual fundraiser where we create a Breast Cancer Apparel Collection with all profits donated to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
My grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer and sadly passed away from it, which is why this cause is so close to my heart. In honor of her and many others, Island Athletics would like to do as much as we can to help those in need.
This past October was our first annual fundraiser and we are excited to share that we raised $470 in donations. We are very grateful for those who purchased apparel from the Breast Cancer Collection and donated to this great cause. Our hope is that this number will grow each year!
