Cure at the Shore
Senior Lifeguard, Martin Hagan of the Wildwood Beach Patrol is credited with the initial concept of “Cure at the Shore.”
“I just think that lifeguards put a lot of effort into training and preparation for their beach patrols. Lifeguards are also in the eye of the public, so if we could raise awareness for such a great cause, it is a win-win for everyone.”
“I initially thought the idea of “Cure at the Shore” could be applied to an individual event such as a long distance row, a run, or a swim, but with help from my Chief and Captain, it expanded into a much broader concept that will involve a lot more people and hopefully raise a lot more money for the Cure.”
The Wildwood Beach Patrol and Susan G. Komen Central and South Jersey are preparing for the first ever “Cure at the Shore”. The event will take place this summer on the weekend of August 8th & 9th at the beaches of the Jersey Shore.
The Lifeguards of Wildwood will wear the pink “Cure at the Shore” t-shirt and the same t-shirt will be available to the public for a $10 donation to the Susan G. Komen Central and South Jersey. The goal is to “PINK OUT” the Jersey Shore. 100% of the profits will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation fight against breast cancer.
Please Know Your Your Breast Health...
The key to survival is early detection.
The greatest risk factors for breast cancer are being female and growing older. Breast cancer knows no boundary, be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location. We must continue to keep breast cancer top of mind because it affects so many!
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. That’s one in eight within your company, school and organization. Now is the time to take action, to secure a long, healthy future for our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends!
Three simple steps for early detection are regular mammograms, clinical exams and breast self- exams. It is important to make healthy lifestyle choices.
And, remember, breast cancer affects more than just the patient; friends and family need support too.
Susan G. Komen …
For the past 31 years, Komen has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.
Over the next 25 years, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer if we don’t find a cure. Komen will not stop until the cures are found and delivered.
We Will Find the Cure!
