Splashfest for Breast Cancer
Want a fun way to support women with Breast Cancer? The Bangor Y has the perfect solution! Splashfest! On October 14th, swimmers will take to the water for a fun swim. Not a great swimmer? That’s okay! You choose your distance, from 25 yards up to a mile. You can register as an individual or take part as a team!
You can sign up at the Bangor Y’s website. Just click on the Splashfest link! And you can download a fun workout program that will help you become a stronger swimmer before the event, so you can swim even farther! The folks at the Bangor Y hope you’ll download a pledge sheet and collect donations too!
The money raised will go to Caring Connections at the Bangor Y. Caring Connections provides breast health education, cancer screenings/diagnostics and treatment for uninsured and under-insured women in Maine, and support groups for women dealing with the disease.
There will be fun for everyone, with donut eating contests and a visit from the University of Maine women’s basketball team! Splashfest will be held at the Bangor Y on Sunday, October 14th from 7am to 1:30pm. It costs $20 per individual to register, or $15 per team member. For more information or to sign up go to the Bangor Y website or call 941-2808. Do it today!
