Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) will be hosting its annual, statewide Against the Tide athletic fundraising events as both virtual and in-person events this summer. MBCC will host two virtual events each with a 7-day participation window: Against the Tide June Virtual Event – June 20th – 26th and Against the Tide August Virtual Event – August 8th – 14th. The virtual event components include 1-mile recreational or competitive swims, ½-mile recreational swim, 5K or 10K runs, 3-mile walk, ½-mile stand-up paddleboard, and 2-mile kayak. For participants who are looking to challenge themselves, there is an Aquathon option, consisting of a competitive 1-mile swim followed immediately by either a 5K or 10K run. New in 2021, the event will feature a half marathon option for the June event and a full marathon for the August event. Additionally, MBCC is hoping to offer an in-person event on August 14th at DCR’s Nickerson State Park featuring a 1-mile swim, 5K or 10K runs, and a 3-mile walk. The in-person event is pending state approval. If, due to COVID restrictions, MBCC is not able to host this event in-person, all registrations will be transferred to the Against the Tide August Virtual Event. Registration for both the virtual and in-person options is $40 for an individual participant, and $100 for a family registration (up to 5 family members). "We are grateful to the many people who continue to support MBCC, and were so encouraged by how well our virtual events were received by participants both locally and nationally in 2020,” explains Cheryl Osimo, MBCC's Executive Director. “In 2021, we hope that providing multiple virtual options along with a potential in-person event will give even more people a chance to be a part of the Against the Tide events to swim, walk, run, paddle, or kayak in support of breast cancer prevention."
