Busting a move for breast health

Survivors of breast cancer and their supporters will raise funds for cancer research

Breast cancer survivors and supporters had downtown Vancouver buzzing in a fitness fury with the introduction of the BC Cancer Foundation’s epic new event — Bust a Move for Breast Health.

An outdoor workout led by Teresa Tibbutt of Coast Kinetics, rippled energetic waves through the crowd gathered at the Vancouver Art Gallery’s Georgia Street Plaza for the launch of this new MOVEment.

“I can’t imagine a better reason to get movin’ and  groovin’ than for breast cancer research,” said Tibbutt who encouraged all to sign up for Bust a Move at www.bustamove.ca.

Breast cancer survivor, Brooke Moss is pumped to participate in the new event.

“I’m healthy today thanks to the progress that’s been made in breast cancer treatments. Progress only happens by funding research and I plan to Bust a Move until all women diagnosed with breast cancer have a successful outcome.”

Bust a Move has been building momentum across the country and is coming to B.C. on April 13, 2013 — it’s a day-long fitness fundraising extravaganza that will have participants moving, grooving and stretching through six exhilarating fitness sessions in support of the BC Cancer Foundation and life-saving breast cancer research taking place at the BC Cancer Agency.

“We are absolutely thrilled to introduce Bust a Move to British Columbians,” said Brendan Robinson, Vice President of Development at the BC Cancer Foundation. “Building on the strength of other Foundation events that have raised millions for leading-edge cancer research at the BC Cancer Agency, we believe Bust a Move will accelerate the momentum of breakthrough discoveries happening here in our own backyard, and make a difference in the lives of those diagnosed with breast cancer.”

Breast cancer is the most common cancer affecting women in B.C.; this year an estimated 3,200 British Columbians will receive the diagnosis. The good news is that most of the women diagnosed will survive thanks to the great strides made in knowledge and care.
