|Almost everyone in America has been touched by Breast Cancer.
We all know someone who has been affected by Breast Cancer; our family members, our friends or possibly ourselves. One in eight women and one in one thousand men will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Of those, 23% will die from breast cancer (www.cancer.org).
In 2008, Eugene Skin Divers Supply organized and co-sponsored the first annual Dive for a Cure at the Woahink Lake Day Use Area (Gazebo) in Florence, OR and raised almost $20,000. In 2009 we raised $30,000. In 2010 over $42,000.00 In 2011 over $50,000, in 2012 over $52,000.00, in 2013 participants raised over $59,300.00, in 2014 participants raised over $70,000.00, in 2015 sponsors and participants raised over $150,000.00, and in 2016 sponsors and participants raised over $113,000.00.
All proceeds from money raised from Dive for a Cure are donated to the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute for breast cancer research and education. Oregon Health Sciences University is a tax-deductible non-profit IRS 501(C) (3) organization. You can help personally by participation or a generous pledge to Dive for a Cure.
