Dear Sponsors, Partners, Vendors and Donors.,
I just received this note from Komen Miami:
We are so grateful for the hard work and effort that you put forth on our behalf!! You are amazing and this event truly represents some of the “Best” of Miami and our service area!! Everyone had such a fabulous time and the screenings were definitely an important part of our day. One of the highlights for me was when 3 of our first time event Survivors each bid on and won the 3 paddleboards that you had in the silent auction. They were all so thrilled and determined to start paddle boarding as a way to improve their health and help recover from the ravishes of this horrific disease.
Thank you, thank you, thank you…

They also have lots of boards to rent to save you the hassle of shipping your board to Maui for your vacation :)
Watch “Standup” : The Video!!Matty Schweitzer, Zane's brother, is a fantastic sports videographer and has made this amazing movie for us all entitled "Standup" to promote and celebrate our event & cause. The video features Zane and Brennan, both of whom you'll meet on May 5th, with their female paddlesurf team sporting Victory for Women pink jerseys! Shawneen Schweitzer makes a cameo appearance too. Matty shot the video in Mexico during the recent competition won by Zane and set it to Kelby Anno's beautifully composed and recorded song dedicated to all breast cancer survivors and their families. It's 3 minutes of fun and great youthful enthusiasm! Click here to Watch it now!

How are the Funds Raised used in the Fight Against Breast Cancer? A message from Judie Vivian, Volunteer OrganizerStandup for the Cure forwards 100% of the donations and proceeds from the event to the Orange County Affiliate of Susan G Komen for the Cure. The event is run by volunteers and 'Gift in Kind' donations. As noted on Komen OC's web site, 25% of all funds received go towards Breast Cancer research and Komen is the largest supporter of research in the USA . The remaining 75% is for Breast Health Services for local women. The Komen Grant process: RFP's are submitted by local clinics to Komen OC for grants to be able to offer breast health services to under-insured or uninsured women. These grant applications are carefully reviewed by the Komen OC Grant Review Committee and if approved and granted, their performance is carefully monitored all year to ensure proper use of those funds per their RFP commitments. The Grant are awarded each December and you are most welcome to attend the breakfast to meet each of the grantees and hear first hand about their programs. Last year Komen OC granted over $1 million to local clinics! On average, a donation of $125 covers the cost of a mammogram, but there are also many other ways Komen OC helps women undergoing treatment such as helping them with hats, wigs and scarves while undergoing chemotherapy, outreach education programs to encourage early detection and support groups. As a breast cancer survivor myself, I feel that this is the most effective use of our funds raised and am committed to the fight against breast cancer for all of us, since 1 in 8 are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime while only 1 in 5 have health insurance in Orange County. I have served on Komen OC's Grant Review Committee and now serve on their Board of Directors so that I can be absolutely sure of how and where our donation funds are spent. Frankly this is a lot now I'm 64 but I'm determined to make a difference for women and breast cancer survivors and hope that the Standup for the Cure approach will help raise awareness and educate younger people about the importance of early detection and what to do if they have no health insurance. Let us know your ideas on how we can make the difference in this important fight against breast cancer. Mahalo! Judie
