100% of all net proceeds from Pink Boat Regatta's efforts and events are donated to
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
We choose to support BCRF because:
- BCRF's mission is to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the world's most promising research.
- In 2016-2017, BCRF will award $57 million in annual grants to more than 250 scientists from top universities and medical institutions around the globe, including 5 prominent grantees right here in our own PNW community.
- BCRF is the highest rated breast cancer organization in the US with an A+ rating from Charity Watch and 4 out of 4 stars from Charity Navigator, donating 91 cents of every dollar to breast cancer research and awareness.
- BCRF provides critical funding for breast cancer research worldwide to fuel advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis and survivorship.
“Advances in cancer research are not made in ‘aha’ moments. They come from years of laboratory scientists, doctors, graduate students and support staff working painstakingly long hours in front of a lab bench, or an instrument, or an Excel spreadsheet that never seems to end. And scientific equipment is no different than boating equipment – expensive as hell. Even the most important and groundbreaking research has to stop when funding runs out.” - Ashley Bell, Pink Boat Regatta President
We are PROUD of this community for coming together again and again with unmatched spirit, dedication, and enthusiasm.
PLEASE JOIN US IN THIS IMPORTANT MISSION.
