“We were blown away by the support of our sposnors and the Mountain Brook community, which was also the home to one of our co-founders, Dolly O’Neal, whom the Dolly Dash was named after,” said Amy Stevens, Breast Cancer Research Foundation of Alabama Junior Board Co-President. “Breast Cancer is a disease that affects far too many of us, and we wanted to raise awareness for the BCRFA and funds to support the ground breaking research being done in our own backyard at UAB and across Alabama. Thanks to everyone who participated, we have been able to accomplish this.”
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation of Alabama takes a comprehensive approach to battling breast cancer through support of collaborative and innovative research to help diagnose, treat, prevent and eradicate the disease. All of the funds raised remain in Alabama, supporting local research, which in turn makes a national impact.
Many have been touched in some way by the disease, as one out of eight women are affected by breast cancer. Research is the key to finding new treatments and ultimately a cure for this disease. The BCRFA Junior Board is already making plans for Pink Up the Pace 2020 to help fund research, which will save lives.
