At a time where many fundraisers have been cancelled, charities have missed out on lots of vital money to aid research. Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC) is a non-profit foundation that runs education, prevention and survivor programs for people with/ have had cancer and their families. To keep their programs running, B4BC has taken their annual Skate the Lake fundraiser online.
