In the Community
MBCW is an active partner in the community and works to include as many supporters as possible in the activities of the organization.
- Honor Thy Healer
Each year, MBCW hosts an awards luncheon to recognize individuals who play the important role of supporter and healer in breast cancer treatment, either in a professional or personal way.
- Dipsea Hike/Run
To promote the importance of physical fitness in the fight against breast cancer, MBCW holds an annual Dipsea Hike/Run on the famed route on Mount Tamalpais. The event is held in honor of former MBCW board member Annie Fox, who passed away in 2002 at age 35 after a fight against breast cancer.
