Launch Snowboards is pleased to announce their partnership with Boarding for Breast Cancer. As part of the partnership, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of Launch’s line of women’s snowboards as well as select exclusive Launch x B4BC apparel pieces will be donated directly to Boarding for Breast Cancer, benefiting B4BC’s mission of outreach, education, and young survivor wellness retreats.
Boarding for Breast Cancer was founded in 1996 as a foundation with a mission that can be broken down into a single equation: Early Detection + Healthy, Active Lifestyle = Best Prevention for Breast Cancer. Their focus is on the empowerment of young people to inspire positive lifestyle choices, supporting those who are affected by breast cancer and providing a community of strength and unity.
If an active and healthy lifestyle is one of best means for prevention, why not be active in the best way possible, on a board! With an outpouring of support from the action sports industry, B4BC’s history started in snowboarding and has grown to all types of board sports. B4BC’s founders include two pro-snowboarders and their first and biggest event was the B4BC Snowboard + Music Festival that over the course of its six year run hosted the likes of The Beastie Boys, Blink 182, Foo Fighters, and many others and raised over $500,000. Since then, they have launched board-a-thons and toured around the country to provide educational outreach experiences. That’s why most of the year, B4BC is on the road and advocating their mission at surf, skate and snow events, music festivals, mountain resorts, and colleges.
