Team Gear it for the Girlz started with just 3 friends looking to support something dear to our hearts. The 2020 ride will be our 6th year riding and we have grown into an amazing team. As team captain, I could not be more proud of not only our fundraising ability, but also our willingness to be there for each other as well as other riders on the road. The men on our team said what they remembered most about last years ride was the great people they met and wonderful feeling after helping women up the tough hills. We’ve made an exciting commitment to once again participate as a team in the YSC Tour de Pink, a 3-day bike ride for breast cancer. It’s a huge challenge for all of us, but together, we know that we can do it.
We each have our own reasons for joining in this effort, but we are all committed to supporting Young Survival Coalition, the largest nonprofit dedicated exclusively to young adults diagnosed with breast cancer age 40 and under and their co-survivor support networks
Tour de Pink is much more than just a bike ride, it’s a chance to honor survivors, raise awareness that young adults can and do get breast cancer, and to come together as a supportive community.
YSC serves over 8,000 women each year with support and education to be their best health advocate throughout all stages of breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, and long-term survivorship. YSC also educates and influences the medical, research and legislative communities to address breast cancer in young adults. Through educational resources and programming, annual conferences, and local and online support networks, YSC ensures no young adult faces breast cancer alone.

All three-day riders are required to raise $3,000 and one-day riders to raise $500 for Tour de Pink. We have set our goals high!
Because we are working as a team, with your help, we know that we can do it. Please support us today.
