It's the 12th year of Stand Up for the Cure in Muskegon, but it's also a remarkably big year for the event in Muskegon because the strength of community has stood in one place nationwide to keep this essential event going that not only helps fund research into the dreadful disease of breast cancer, it helps funds the needs for women who could otherwise not afford the costs for screenings that could possibly save their lives. 

 

 

What makes this year a stand out year for Stand Up for the Cure? Muskegon is the only spot in the nation where this event has been able to stay going.  Stand Up for the Cure began as a national event in a few different waterfront communities.  The pandemic was a terribly hard time on more than just the population, charity events took a great deal of loss and with that, a lot went under.  It was the resilience of Muskegon and those how know that our community is better than anywhere else to keep essential events running.  We can make stone soup better than any other community in the country.  Our needs are met by those who have lived the experience and understand that it in helping others that we thrive.  We're also pretty good at making such things a good time too.  

Stand Up for the Cure will get underway bright and early on Saturday July 13th.  8:30a to be exact. This festival-style event includes an opportunity to try paddleboarding, music, happy hour, yoga, silent auction, games, free cancer screenings, & lunch. Paddlers of all levels and all ages are welcome! Participants that are new to paddling can learn alongside other beginners, or attend the event as a "dry-foot" participant.  You don't want to miss it.  It will be a sun soaked day at Ross Park filled with friends, family and community driven by purpose.  That purpose is to assure that no one has to face the diagnosis of breast cancer alone. 

The funds collected stay local.  The VanAndel Institute and Hackely Community Care are the beneficiaries of the event and to know that the team behind the purpose has been the reason this event continues in Muskegon is reason enough to come out for the day and support such a cause.  BUY YOURSELF A TICKET to be in the middle of the fun and know that your donation will be going to help someone you might even know when it comes to beating breast cancer.  We'll look forward to seeing you at Ross Park on July 13th.
