Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition Against the Tide
For the 28th year, I will be participating in Against the Tide with The Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition on June 20th in Hopkinton, MA. I was one of the founders of this spirited event and I swim for the many people in my life have been impacted by breast cancer – this is for you!
For the third year, I will have a team. As an aquatic physical therapist, I work with special kids and adults individuals who have disabilities. Many learn to swim and use the water in therapeutic and recreational ways. I would like to bring people together – my patients, friends and family, to join in and support this worthy cause. Here is a link to my team – Making Waves. Last year we were the top fundraising team! Please join us! https://www.firstgiving.com/team/397878
There are many ways to participate. Swimming (competitive/Aquathon and recreational), kayaking, walking, and running (ASATF certified 5K and 10K). Participants can enter up to 3 events. Swimmers in the recreational event can use fins and supports. The 3-mile fitness walk is a paved bike path and I am told that it is appropriate for wheelchair users. I will swim in the competitive swim, and I will likely join some of my patients in the recreational swim.
Please join our team today, https://www.firstgiving.com/team/397878
If you are unable to join our team, please consider making a donation to my swim. https://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/laura-diamond-1/2020-Against-the-Tide-Hopkinton

I hope you will join us!
A Note from MBCC about COVID-19
At this time, it is Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition’s (MBCC) intent to proceed with the Against the Tide events as scheduled. If the events must be cancelled due to continued COVID-19 health concerns, MBCC is rolling out a virtual participant option for both the Hopkinton and Cape Cod events to provide participants with an alternative way to be a part of the Against the Tide events and to continue their support of MBCC’s mission of cancer prevention. In addition, they will plan an alternative dates in September at which time they will have both in person and virtual event options. MBCC is currently in communication with state officials to secure alternative dates for both locations in September. SO, you will still be able to participate in and support MBCC’s Against the Tide events either in person or virtually!
