2018 Mountain Retreat Survivor Grant Application
 WHAT: Chasing Sunshine Program Mountain Retreat
WHEN: February 21 - February 24, 2018

Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC) is pleased to continue the Chasing Sunshine Program, Ocean and Mountain Retreats for young breast cancer survivors. Inspired and directed by Megan Pischke, B4BC’s Health and Wellness Manager, pro-snowboarder, breast cancer survivor, and a leader in creating holistic outdoor retreats. Megan leads a team of experts in nutrition, yoga, and alternative wellness approaches, making each retreat as authentic and special as possible for participants. The upcoming Chasing Sunshine Mountain Retreat will mark B4BC’s 9th retreat and will be a beautiful weekend in Taos, NM, from February 21 - February 24, 2018. 

Thanks to the continued support of our partners, we’re able to grant (6) full scholarships and (4) partial scholarships to attend this wellness weekend.  For the partial scholarships we are empowering the participants to do a small amount of personal fundraising to offset B4BC’s costs and thus allowing more women to participate in our upcoming retreats. We understand that this may sound like an intimidating task, but the B4BC team is here to help you every step of the way. If selected as a partial scholarship participant for the upcoming retreat, B4BC will set up a personal fundraising page for you with the information and photos you choose to provide. You can then share out this link with friends, family, co-workers, and the rest of your community. We are asking partial scholarship participants to fundraise a minimum of $400 for their spot at the retreat. 

In summary, it’s simple: apply by Friday, January 12, 2018. 8 participants are chosen via lottery process and will be notified by Sunday, January 14, 2018. The winners have 2 days to confirm their spot and then one month to fundraise for their spot.

Again, please note that this grant DOES NOT include the cost of travel to and from Taos, NM but will cover the following activities:

• Reception dinner meet and greet
• A (3) night stay at a cozy slope side mountain home shared occupancy 
• 9 delicious whole foods, plant based meals, starting with a dinner on arrival night
• Spiritual insights, energy work, and private consultations and readings with life coach Linda Kennoy
