Boarding For Breast Cancer (B4BC) returns to Waterville Valley for the 12th year in a row on February 2 & 3. This is the longest running B4BC event, and over the past 11 years Waterville Valley has raised over $50,000 for the nonprofit organization.
The B4BC event features a fun raffle with loads of product up for grabs, and a ski and snowboard rail jam on Sunday, Feb. 3. One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event goes to B4BC’s educational, prevention, and survivorship programs.
Register for the rail jam on Sunday, Feb. 3, from 8-10 a.m. in the Base Lodge Sunroom. The cost is $20 per person. The rail jam starts at 11 a.m. and awards will follow at 12:15 p.m.
Purchase raffle tickets ($2 each; six for $10) throughout the weekend in the Base Lodge Sunroom. Winners will be drawn on Sunday, Feb. 3 at 3 p.m. Prizes include helmets, outerwear, snowboards, skis and more! You do not need to be present to win.
Waterville Valley Resort Marketing Operations Manager and event organizer, Jamie Cobbett has a very personal reason for supporting the B4BC event. “My mother is a breast cancer survivor. She’s been cancer free for over a decade now. That coupled with my love of the ski industry and snowboarding, I felt like B4BC was a cause we need to support.”
Waterville Valley local, Pam Turner (pictured below), is also a breast cancer survivor and a long-time volunteer at the B4BC event. Pam will be selling raffle tickets and registering skiers and snowboarders for the rail jam. You’ll recognize her because she will be wearing a big, fancy hat. Every year Pam is our top fundraiser and single-handedly raises $4,000-$5,000 for B4BC.
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.
