January 28, 2015

Waterville Turns Pink on Super Bowl Sunday!

Join us in Waterville Valley on Super Bowl Sunday, February 1, 2015, for one of our favorite events of the season – Boarding for Breast Cancer (aka B4BC).

Take part in the annual Pink Raffle to support B4BC and the NH Breast Cancer Coalition. With YOUR help, Waterville Valley has raised over $38,000 in the last eight years through this event.  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.
