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.
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,"
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

The team is currently less than two weeks away
from leaving for the Baja 1000, and plan to

them in making the awareness a 12 month project!
