“Surf for Awareness” Contest Benefiting B4BC Returns to San O' August 9

Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC) Board Member Una Baker and Western Surfing Association (WSA) announce the return of “Surf for Awareness,” a surf contest to promote breast cancer awareness. The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place on Saturday, August 9, 2008 from 6:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at San Onofre State Beach, Trail One. Proceeds from the event will benefit B4BC, the leading non-profit, youth-focused breast cancer awareness foundation that teaches young people the importance of early detection and the value of an active lifestyle.
“This year's surf for awareness event will be extremely exciting.  The wonderful turnout and success from last year has generated so much interest in B4BC.  Therefore, we are going to do a full-day event this year to accommodate all the surfers that want to be apart of the day,” states Una Baker, event creator, breast cancer survivor and B4BC board member.
The event features 19 divisions from elementary to adult for men, women and children, and includes a very special breast cancer survivor heat. The fun-filled day will also feature appearances by special guest professional surfers and live raffles throughout the day with items such as surfboards, skateboards, bicycles and gear.
Registration is $55, however, participants are encouraged to contribute and/or raise $50 or more to benefit the B4BC foundation.
