Quad 75 Dezert

Team Quad75 Dezert Helping Raise Money For Breast Cancer Research

Breast cancer awareness month just came to a close on October 31st, but Quad75Dezert doesn't have a big race to attend like the GNCC Ironman. So in honor of the amazing survivors the team has decided to put forth a fundraising effort on behalf of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. According to www.bcrfcure.org

In 2011, the American Cancer Society estimates that about 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed among women in the United States, and that about 39,520 women will die from the disease.

At this time there are about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer.

In men, 2,140 new cases were projected in the U.S. in 2011, with 450 deaths.

Breast cancer is something that hits close to home, affecting some of the team's family and friends. Brandon Brown's sister is a breast cancer survivor who is now recovering from a second surgery and will probably need another. "It's devastating to the women that have to go through this, their families, and friends. We feel like we can raise money for a good cause, especially because the 1000 is a big race," Brandon explained.

The goal is $100 for every hour of the race. Competitors have 32 hours to finish the nearly 700 mile course. "We would really like to raise more than that, but we think anything can help," Brandon said, "We've got a lot of amazing people supporting us, so we are pretty confident that those same supporters will be as enthusiastic about supporting breast cancer research, making a difference by funding important research for a cure."

The team is currently less than two weeks away from leaving for the Baja 1000, and plan to continue efforts all throughout the 2012 season to raise money for cancer research. Please join them in making the awareness a 12 month project!
