It is the mission of Mush For a Cure to raise awareness of and raise funds to find a cure for breast cancer through annual pledge/tribute runs by dog team.
What is Mush For a Cure? Mush For a Cure is a non-competitive sled dog FUNdraiser with proceeds donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Our goal is to have fun while raising money for the foundation and have our mushers show off their beautiful canine athletes with us while capping off a winter of hard work. To date Mush for a Cure has donated $186,500 to the foundation! This has been done through mushers soliciting pledges, sponsorships, misc. donations and our Bald, Brave and Beautiful competition! We have a goal of raising $50,000 this year bringing our total donations to nearly a quarter of a million dollars!!! Please help us reach our goal!
