Join us for the 1st Adventure Challenge
of the BJBBCR 25th Adventure Weekend Anniversary Celebration:
 
Attend a socially-distanced Mount Willard Hike on Sep. 12,
or hit the trail on your own for a DIY hike in your local area!

 

This event will kick off our celebration to honor the founders of Adventure Weekend and Betty J. Borry Breast Cancer Retreats. While we are unable to meet this year at retreats, we wish to continue to bring support, connection, and hope to our breast sisters. We'll raise some funds to sustain BJB Breast Cancer Retreats and celebrate 25 years of adventures connecting women living after breast cancer to become “thrivers."
 
Although there is no cost to attend, the suggested donation for BJB alumnae is based on the year you attended a retreat; for example, if you attended in 2010, the suggested donation is $20.10. Your donation in any amount is greatly appreciated.
 
PLUS: You Could Win a 2021 BJB Retreat!
Every 25th AWE Anniversary Celebration registration/donation received includes a chance to win a 2021 BJB Retreat of your choice valued at $350.

Betty J. Borry Breast Cancer Retreats

Providing empowerment, sisterhood, and adventure to women of all ages and stages of Breast Cancer.

At Betty J. Borry Breast Cancer Retreats, women living after breast cancer move from surviving to thriving. We use challenge-by-choice activities and expressive/healing arts to create a supportive, inclusive, invigorating environment. Participants gain confidence, make new friends, find healing in the outdoors, and discover their own strengths in the recovery process.

 

“When I arrived, it was about me
and all my loss and anger.
When I left it was about us.
I came away
feeling stronger.
The women
made me strong.”
-- Rose
 

 

Betty J. Borry Breast Cancer Retreats is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization.

for women of all ages and stages of breast cancer,
enhancing their quality of life through adventure-based opportunities.
