Club's 2011 Fall Ride for breast cancer awareness

October 10, 2011

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the T-Bones Off Road Club has dedicated its 2011 Fall Ride to promote awareness.
" Let’s face it, we’ve all known someone, whether it be family, friend or relative, that has been touched by this disease," said Kellie Mocik, one of the event organizers. "Some of us have lost loved ones to breast cancer while others know a survivor or someone who is battling this horrible disease today."
The ride is open to any and all four-wheel drive vehicles and event organizers are planning to make a donation to the Susan G. Komen For the Cure foundation in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
"We encourage everyone to become knowledgeable about breast cancer and to take the necessary steps to stay healthy," Mocik said. "Monthly self breast exams and mammograms can catch cancer before it has a chance to spread, and this goes for the guys, too.
"It’s just as important for you to know you could be someone who gets breast cancer, so take the steps to ensure your health."
Mocik said there is a exorbitant amount of information on the subject and club officials had a strong desire to show support for awareness by holding a fall ride to raise funds for breast cancer research and awareness.
Anyone wishing to participate in this event is encouraged to RSVP to Mocik at 814-594-8978 or Janine Emerick at 814-335-8962.
