2019 Breaststroke 4 Breast Cancer


Join the Northwestern University Swimming & Diving Team for the 8th annual Breaststroke 4 Breast Cancer! B4BC will be held on Friday, October 25th from 5:30 to 7:00 pm at the Henry Crown Sports Pavilion in Evanston.

This fundraiser unites NU students, faculty, and the surrounding community during an hour-long relay style swim-a-thon. All proceeds will benefit breast cancer research at the Lurie Cancer Research Foundation at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Our fundraiser also features a silent auction, a bake sale, and an abundance of Wildcat pride.

During the past seven years, we have raised over $45,000 for The Lynn Sage Breast Cancer Research Foundation and we hope to make an even more significant contribution this year.  Whether you would like to create a team to swim or just come to cheer on the swimmers and enjoy the bake sale, the more support we can get the more successful we will be. 

However, if you are unable to attend numerous other ways to support us if you cannot attend B4BC. Please visit http://nub4bc.wix.com/b4bc to donate online and to learn more about how you can help us fight for a cure today.

This event began 8 years ago in hopes of standing in solidarity with those affected with breast cancer within our own extended team family. Today, B4BC represents more than just the NU Wildcats; it represents the collaborative effort of an entire community for one cause. We invite you to join this community by attending our fundraising or donating through our website.

Thank you so much for your support as we fight to find the cure!
