The Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition is one of the few organizations that focuses on disease prevention – finding the causes of cancer before it starts. MBCC is a unique local organization that founded Silent Spring Institute (SSI), a nationally acclaimed scientific research organization that studies the links between breast cancer and the environment. MBCC utilizes this information to do the work of education and advocacy throughout the state.

You are invited to support their work at the annual statewide Against the Tide fundraising event, which consists of swim, kayak, walk, and run components. You can choose to participate in one or more of these events in any combination. Against the Tide will take place on June 22nd at DCR’s Hopkinton State Park and again August 17th at DCR’s Nickerson State Park on Cape Cod. Visit or call 1-800-649-MBCC (6222) for more information and to register or make a pledge on a participant.
