Batting Against Breast Cancer™
Batting Against Breast Cancer™ is a family friendly, community-led slo-pitch
tournament in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
Taking place in three locations during the summer of 2016, this annual event is a
way to take a swing at breast cancer while building awareness and fundraising
for the cause.
Teams comprising a minimum of 10 people and a
maximum of 15 (three members MUST be female)
are able to register online and start fundraising right away.
This event is also a fundraising challenge, so each team is
required to raise the minimum fundraising amount for their respective
location in order to participate. Fundraising minimums
vary per location. Prizing is awarded to top team
and individual fundraisers.
New to slo-pitch? Not to worry. Batting Against Breast Cancer
has a variety of divisions, making it fun for all skill levels. Divisions vary per location. Beyond a fun
day full of slo-pitch, each location also runs various events, such as marshmallow golf,
homerun competitions and other family-friendly activities, throughout the tournament.
Batting Against Breast Cancer was introduced to Edmonton for the first time in
2004 as a signature event for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
Raising over $65,000 in its inaugural year, Batting Against Breast Cancer eventually
grew to a second location, Winnipeg, in 2007. The annual tournament now takes place
in three locations and has raised over $3.4 million for breast cancer research
and awareness projects to date.
Step up to the plate and share the Foundation’s vision of creating a future without breast cancer!
