Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) will hold its annual Against the Tide athletic fundraising events in 2021. MBCC will host an in-person event on August 14th in DCR's Nickerson State Park, Flax Pond, Brewster. Additionally, MBCC will host the Against the Tide August Virtual Event—August 8th - August 14th. Proceeds benefit MBCC, the state's leading breast cancer organization dedicated to preventing the environmental causes of breast cancer through community education, research advocacy, and changes to public policy. Betty Anne Bevis has served as chairwoman of Against the Tide for many years, including in 2020, when the event went virtual due to COVID-19. Ms. Bevis was only 46 years old when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her own father was the same age when he tragically passed away due to cancer. However, Betty Anne did not let her diagnosis take over her life, as she continued to take classes at the University of Massachusetts Boston where she was studying to earn her degree. While enrolled at UMASS, she underwent four surgeries for her cancer. Ms. Bevis says that her family's support is what energized her the most during that difficult time. Betty Anne met MBCC Executive Director Cheryl Osimo in 2004. She found support in Osimo, and decided to become a spokesperson for the Coalition. Bevis believes in MBCC and their mission because of their emphasis on prevention. She believes her cancer had a lot to do with toxic chemicals in her environment, referencing high rates of cancer in the Cape Cod area. Additionally, Betty Anne supports the financial endeavors of MBCC, stating, "If you look at their expense charts they use so little for their administration and stuff like that, all the money goes into education and programs." Cheryl Osimo greatly appreciates Betty Anne's hard work, saying, "We are very grateful to Betty Anne for the many years of support she has provided to Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition.
