Yes, a Diva and a Soldier! I am not just a Rider - I'm also a Survivor!
Divas For A Cure ("DFAC") a California Non-Profit Public Benefit Corporation.
Divas For A Cure "DFAC" was founded by Jan Emanuel-Costley out of a very personal experience. Although breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in California, the chance of survival when diagnosed early like Jan is as high as 95%.
Divas For A Cure is dedicated to promoting early detection, education, screenings and supporting research organizations to continue the quest to one day find a cure and eradicating cancers of all kinds. Proceeds from this ride will be dedicated towards the goal of health fairs and educational materials, wig donations for women enduring chemotherapy, mobile breast exams into segments of society that do not ordinarily seek or receive medical attention due to socioeconomic conditions. It is with your generous support, that DFAC will be a success.
Do you want to get involved? We are all volunteers at Divas For A Cure - - there are NO Paid Salaries for the DFAC Board of Directors or DFAC Core Group Riders and/or Participants, therefore $.90 of every dollar raised actually goes to the Breast Cancer Research Fund. Our organizations' overhead is underwritten by Corporate Sponsors and/or donated In-Kind Services.
A Long Time Coming...
