Crawling For A Cure (CFAC) was founded in November 2011 and had its first annual event in October of 2013. Our goal is simple: raise awareness and money to fund breast cancer research and to help patients and survivors.
Breast cancer in its various forms affects at least one out of every thousand women and can occur in men as well. Although treatment for breast cancer has improved markedly in the past 20 years and the 5-year survival rate has improved, there’s still a long way to go in curing this insidious disease.
In the past 4 years, CFAC has donated over $35,000 to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, The Pink Angels, Inc., and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Crawling For A Cure
In 2016, Crawling For A Cure attended multiple events, including Go Topless Days in Monson, MA, the Great American Jeep Rally in Ellington, CT, and Jeeps N Cars for a Cause in Saugus, MA. We’d like to thank our hosts for having us and for supporting CFAC! In 2016, the Pacific Northwest Four Wheel Drive Association of Washington State held their second Trail Jam Trail Ride in support of us and donated the proceeds to our fundraising efforts.
In October, we held our 4th Annual Crawling For A Cure event at the Quaboag Riders M/C’s land in Monson MA. It was a beautiful day and people came from all over the greater new England area. Members of numerous offroad clubs, including Ocean State Jeespsters, Bay State Jeepers, East Coast Off-Road Jeepers of CT, and Wicked Jeeps, provided tremendous support at our event once again. In addition, the Quaboag Riders M/C graciously arranged for demonstration hill climbs of the Monson Monster- these were a huge hit once again! We had more than 250 vehicles and over 400 people attend our 4th annual event and over 100 raffle prizes were awarded!
In 2016, CFAC was able to donate $5,000 to the Pink Angels, Inc., $5,000 to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and another $5,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Additionally, Crawling For A Cure was admitted to the Presidents’ Circle at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
2017 is shaping up to be an exciting year for Crawling For A Cure: our 5th annual event is scheduled for October 14th in Monson, MA! In addition to the local events like Go Topless Day and The Great American Jeep Rally, CFAC plans to head outside of New England for a few national events! We are also excited to have launched a spin off offroad club: Crawling For A Cure Offroad and we will be doing trail rides in New England and beyond!
