Big crowd expected for ‘Foo’

Expectations are high this year for the annual Boarding for Breast Cancer benefit.

Organizers are planning for big crowds and profitable returns. Their goal is to raise $100,000 for the fight against breast cancer. In the first two BBC editions, they made more than $125,000.

“We think we have the ability to raise that kind of money this year,” said Brett Smith of Fuse Sports Marketing. “We have had good turnouts the last couple of years and we expect the same this year.”

The money raised from the event will go to two non-profit organizations, the Susan G. Coleman and Breast Cancer funds.

The snowboarding industry has taken the lead in the awareness campaign among younger women. Two guest speakers who have battled breast cancer are scheduled in the daylong lineup of music and snowboarding.

“One of the women who was 27 didn’t listen to her doctor and then got a second opinion,” Smith said. “She’s now cancer-free, but learning more about the disease saved her life.”
