Who Benefits

Proceeds from The Hartford & RE/MAX Results Breast Cancer Ride will benefit:

1.  Meal delivery program that delivers free, nutritious meals to the women and men affected with breast cancer, including their caregivers and dependent children.  Meals provided by Open Arms of Minnesota.

2.  Exercise for Cancer Recovery Scholarship Program.  This scholarship program helps support an exercise program that focuses on building strength, balance, flexibility, range of motion, and functional movement for women and men who are diagnosed with breast cancer and are either in treatment or post-treatement.  Services provided by Art of Well.

3.  Wig Scholarship Program.  When a person is diagnosed with breast cancer, they may choose to purchase a wig if they lose their hair during treatment.  Wigs can be very expensive and are often not covered by insurance.  A portion of the proceeds from the Ride will help support a wig scholarship program.  Wigs provided by A Fitting Place.

4.  Breast Cancer Awareness Association Conference Sponsor.  The BCAA puts on a very important yearly conference with a mission to serve women and men in the community by providing easy access to support and information about breast cancer and to enhance the quality of life for survivors, family and friends.  A portion of the proceeds from the Ride will support the conference.  Learn more about the BCAA.

5.  Breast Cancer Service Organizations & Research.  Through the work of our Rides, Crew, volunteers and donors, we are able to help reach out to many Minnesota-based breast cancer service organizations while also supporting breast cancer research.  We do this through our relationship with the Minnesota Affiliate of Susan G. Komen.
