2012 Challenge Events: "Grand Challenge 2012" and "Peak Hike 2012"
BAYS members participate in two very special Challenge Events in 2012.
On August 30, 2012, a small but mighty group of BAYS members completed the grueling hike to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, and back again. This is the second time that BAYS has climbed the Grand Canyon – the first time was in 2006 with BAYS co-founder Deb Mosley. The 2012 Grand Challenge team raised awareness about young women with breast cancer, and inspired their friends, family, and fellow BAYS members with their strength and endurance.
On September 29, 2012, a team of BAYS members, family and friends participated for the third consecutive year in the Breast Cancer Fund's Peak Hike. The BAYS team hiked the seven-mile route on Mt. Tamalpais and spent the day with others committed to stopping breast cancer before it starts. In the process, the BAYS team raised over $10,000 and was the Peak Hike's #3 top fundraising team.
BAYS Co-Founder Deb Mosley (1968-2008) and Angela Padilla originated the annual BAYS Challenge Event to raise public awareness of breast cancer in young women and to raise funds for local cancer organizations.
