While so much has changed around us, one thing hasn’t… the need for more breast cancer research. Breast cancer continues to be one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in US women with 1 in 8 women developing invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Together, we can move closer to developing better medicines, better treatments, and our hope, cures for breast cancers with every fundraising dollar we raise! Join us Saturday, October 10 at 7500 Alaska Ave SE, Caledonia, MI 49316 for the 13th annual Bee Brave Run/Walk either in person or virtually and help us make a difference.

About Bee Brave

Bee Brave is more than just a few events throughout the year to raise money for local breast cancer research. Throughout the last twelve years, it has grown to become a community of likeminded individuals who are passionate about raising breast cancer awareness, supporting fighters, and honoring those whose battle has ended. It has become a haven of hope for those who need it, a home to share their courageous stories in, as well as a place to celebrate the victories and triumphs over breast cancer.

What makes Bee Brave unique?

Bee Brave is different because 100% of the money raised stays in Grand Rapids, Michigan! But that’s not all. Bee Brave is different because:

  • 100% of our events are organized by volunteers and supported by local business sponsors who are dedicated to finding a cure.
  • 100% of race registration goes directly to breast cancer research at Van Andel Institute.

Bee Brave raised over $90,000 for breast cancer research in 2018 and that simply would not have been possible without the support of our local business sponsors and the volunteers who give countless hours to this cause. None of our incredible volunteer organizers receive a paycheck from Bee Brave because they would rather see every single dollar be used for research!

Volunteer for Bee Brave

We NEED YOU! We will need upwards of 25 more volunteers this year. It would also be helpful if you all could use the philosophy, “Each one, Reach one,” and invite a reliable friend to join in you volunteering. We will need upwards of 25 more volunteers this year. We are praying that you can make it and consider asking a friend or two to join you!
