Many people look to make a difference every October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but for one local survivor, making a difference is a task she focuses on all year round. Today, Sandy Hanshaw, owner of The Wine Pub and Coffee Hub & Café, announces the return of her iconic Bike for Boobs.
On Sunday, October 14, Bike for Boobs invites community members to grab their bikes and join dozens of supporters in pink for an afternoon rendezvous to support the fight against breast cancer. For the first time ever, the fundraising event is donating all proceeds to Encinitas-based charity, Shades of Pink Foundation, and adding a 20-mile road ride.
The extended road ride is set to commence at 2 p.m. The leisurely group ride around Shelter Island begins at 3 p.m. then all are invited back to The Wine Pub for drinks, light appetizers, live music, an auction and more.
“Receiving the devastating news that you’re fighting for your life is dire and learning the financial strain to go through treatment only adds to the devastation,” said Hanshaw. “For our sixth year, I wanted to help those in financial distress right here at home. Shades of Pink Foundation is truly the perfect fit.”
Folks planning to join the ride against breast cancer, pull out your pink tutus and visors and reserve your spot below with a suggested $25 donation. The Wine Pub also accepts donations to the Shades of Pink Foundation from those who cannot attend.
