    - Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) will be holding its annual, statewide Against the Tide swim, kayak, walk, and/or run fundraising events again in 2016. The morning events consist of several components: competitive and recreational swims, recreational kayak, recreational walk, and USA Track & Field certified 5K/10K competitive and recreational runs. Participants of all ages and abilities can choose 1, 2, or 3 of these exciting activities. The event also offers an Aquathon “Splash and Dash” component, where participants “splash” in the competitive 1-mile swim and immediately “dash” in the competitive 5K or 10K run (chosen by the participant). Participants may register as an individual or as part of a team. Registration is $40 per non-student per event activity and $25 per student per event activity. The aquathon is $80 for non-students and $50 for students. We encourage all participants to fundraise beyond these suggested minimums, as all proceeds support the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition. Prizes will be awarded to the podium finishers and top fundraisers.
