It started as a leap of faith. Diagnosed at 26 years of age, Kristina Schermer (Team Captain) wanted to give back but even more, she wanted to see if she could ride 200 Miles in Three Days. Kristina’s father, Bob Schermer (co-captain) tried to find every excuse in the world not to join the team and ride 200 miles. After running out of excuses, he road along side his daughter at age 60 and will now do his third 200 mile Tour de Pink. What better way to honor his daughter and all of the women impacted by breast cancer.
Now in our third year at Tour De Pink West Coast, our team of 3 grew to 13 in 2018 and this year...the sky is the limit. Having raised over $48,000 last year we are confident we can exceed that goal this year. We are honored to raise funds for the only non-profit committed to serving women diagnosed under the age of 40.
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.
Tour de Pink is much more than just a ride, it’s a chance to honor survivors, raise awareness and support important programs for young women with breast cancer.
We are each required to raise at least $3,000 in donations, but we plan to raise even more. Because we are working as a team, with your help, we know that we can do it. Please support us today.
