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 nine years, it has grown to become a community of like minded 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 $60,000 for breast cancer research in 2016 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!
