Partnerships are the heart of what we do here at BCRF. By fostering lasting relationships with researchers, families, communities and companies, the Foundation has been able to fund more than 570 million dollars of research since our founding in 1993. As we step into the fall season and countdown to the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are reminded that partnerships of all kinds allow us to fuel the research engine that will #BeTheEnd of this disease once and for all.
Corporate partnerships are one of the many pillars of our Foundation that drive funding and awareness for our mission to eradicate breast cancer. The BCRF family understands what it means to Shop Pink and support research, and we hope to inspire your family to take part in the action this upcoming school year. We are so grateful for these corporate partners whose pink-themed products help young minds in the classroom and wise ones in the clinics and lab across the globe.
