Bolton or Bust: Hike to Support Breast Cancer Prevention

Author: sheila hollender

In the United States, a woman's lifetime risk of developing breast cancer is an alarming 1 in 8, and no more than 1 in 10 women with breast cancer have a genetic history of the disease. A growing body of scientific evidence links toxic chemicals and radiation to high rates of breast cancer.


Join me and hundreds of other supporters at Bolton Valley on Saturday, September 29, for The First Annual Bolton or Bust: Breast Cancer Prevention Hike. The beautiful three-mile, moderate out-and-back hike up the Vista Trail will highlight the importance of breast cancer prevention and benefit the work of the Breast Cancer Fund and Planned Parenthood of Northern New England.  


Sign up now for this unique and rewarding opportunity to get active with a great community. The Breast Cancer Fund is the leading national organization focused on eliminating the environmental risks, including toxic chemical and radiation associated with breast cancer. PPNNE is the leading reproductive health care provider in northern New England, serving more than 44,000 in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont every year, offering education and life-saving breast screenings on a sliding fee scale, so no one is turned away for an inability to pay.


Your participation will help spread the word about breast cancer prevention, support trailblazing work to reduce exposure to toxic chemicals and radiation linked to the disease, and help assure that education and life-saving breast screenings continue to be available to all women.


Come blaze trails with the community as we work together to stop breast cancer before it starts. If you can't join us, but want to show your support please share the news with your communities. Register to hike here and learn more here.
