ReTreat Yourself || B4BC
Posted on by Vierra Reid
Since 1998, B4BC(Boarding For Breast Cancer) has been hosting grassroots events in partnership with local mountains as a platform to promote healthy, active lifestyles. Originated by B4BC, friends everywhere are invited to join the crusade to stomp out breast cancer. Mountain resorts, winter enthusiasts and local communities host board-a-thons and online fundraising pages, turn their mountains pink through awareness merchandise, or just get out and shred in the name of prevention!
Shred the Love event at RED Mountain Resort in Rossland, BC Canada was a huge success this year. With half of the ticket sales revenue being donated to local non-profits, this fun event definitely lived up to it raising over $5,000 dollars for a local Nelson hospital and a future retreat!
Megan Pischke, a Wellness Ambassador for B4BC (and one of our awesome friends!) told us about the whole foods experience at ReTreat Yourself, "The ladies loved the food, and were really open to new "ideas" and the concept of a whole foods plant based diet. Superfoods (like hemp, goji, raw cacao, and chia) were introduced and implemented into the meals, as well as pro-biotic foods like un-pasturized sour kraut and kimchee. The meals were delicious, and really hard to tell how incredibly healing and healthy they were."
Amazing spring snow conditions presented the perfect backdrop for riders to demo gear, visit health and lifestyle booths, and meet top pros. It wasn't a surprise to see smiles on every face with yoga, Thai massages, and a live performance by Pickwick. We were honored to show our support for B4BC programs, and to be a part of this wonderful event.
