MASSACHUSETTS BREAST CANCER COALITION’S ANNUAL STATEWIDE AGAINST THE TIDE EVENTS

by Press Release
March 7, 2018

Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) will be holding its annual, statewide Against the Tide multi-sport events again in 2018. Set against the backdrop of two beautiful state parks, Against the Tide offers something for all outdoor enthusiasts. Participants can enjoy pristine beaches and water locales for the half-mile paddleboard, competitive and recreational 1-mile swims, and 2-mile kayak events, as well a tree-lined rolling paved courses for both the USATF certified 5K and 10K runs, and the 3-mile fitness walk. All ages and abilities are welcome to choose from 1, 2, or 3 of these exciting activities. The event also offers an Aquathon “Splash and Dash” component, where participants “splash” in the competitive 1-mile swim and immediately “dash” in 5K or 10K run (chosen by the participant).

Participants may register as an individual or as part of a team. Registration is $40 per adult per event activity and $25 per student per event activity. Participants are encouraged to fundraise beyond these suggested minimums, as all proceeds support Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition’s unique goal towards breast cancer prevention. Prizes will be awarded to the fastest swim, run, and Aquathon athletes and top fundraisers.

The statewide Metro-Boston Against the Tide will be held for the 26th year at DCR's Hopkinton State Park on Saturday, June 16, 2018. The statewide Cape Cod Against the Tide will be held for the 19th year at DCR's Nickerson State Park on Saturday, August 18, 2018. Both events start at 7:00 am and end at 12:00 noon. Please visit www.mbcc.org/swim or call 617-376-6222 for more information and to register.

A Door is the Real Window to the Soul of a Building

For me doors can be a work of art. There is a poster of interesting Holliston doors available at Fiske's created by local artist Beth Hoffer. While on a trip to England, I kept an eye out for interesting doors. I found some doors which are truly works of art, many of which have stood the test of time and looked better because of it..
