All proceeds from the event will go to support Altru Breast Cancer Coalition. The Breast Cancer Coalition was started in 1995 with a grant from Altru Health Foundation. The Coalition’s purpose is to provide mammograms to women who have no health insurance or cannot afford to pay for a mammogram. Women who meet certain financial criteria pay only $5 for a mammogram. The Coalition has also used funds to purchase education materials for women newly diagnosed with breast cancer.
