Paddle for a Cure: Bending Branches Supports Breast Cancer Research
November 23, 2018
Bending Branches has partnered with Bonafide and other top-name paddling companies to support Rise Up & Paddle for a Cure…
Bending Branches has always been a supporter of many deserving organizations. Most of them are related to paddling, kayak fishing or conservation in some way.
This time we decided to join the effort with other paddling companies to support Paddle for a Cure—joining the larger battle against breast cancer.
For the 2018 Rise Up & Paddle for a Cure Raffle, we’re donating an Angler Ace kayak paddle to the grand prize kayak angling package. Other brands involved in this are Bonafide, YakAttack and Stohlquist.

John Hipsher of YakAttack shares:
“Most everyone has had friends or family affected by breast cancer. Our original goal was to start the benefit raffle during October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but it took awhile to find the right foundation to work with.
“Looking at statistics for breast cancer, women in the US have a 1-in-8 (about 12 percent) lifetime risk of getting this disease. It’s a worthy cause and we have the platform to help make a difference.”
We couldn’t have said it better!
About the Breast Cancer Research Foundation
The foundation we’re working with is the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. It’s the highest-rated breast cancer organization in America. They focus on funding the most promising research with an aim to better prevent and cure this disease.
Their website states:
“Since our founding in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder, BCRF has raised more than half a billion dollars for lifesaving research. Through a unique and streamlined grants program, we seek out the brightest minds in science and medicine and give them the necessary resources to pursue their best ideas. As a result, researchers are able to make discoveries and design new approaches to address all aspects of breast cancer—and do so in record time.” (source page)
