I am so excited for our 8th Annual Boot Camp for Boobies on Saturday October 7th at 9am. Boot Camp for Boobies is a fundraising event with 100% of the proceeds going to support Aurora Health Care Foundation’s Team Phoenix.
Team Phoenix empowers women to become proactive in their own healthcare and survivorship, move beyond the title of cancer survivor and redefine themselves as athletes through the introduction to the joys of exercise and living well.
You may remember last year’s Boot Camp for Boobies event was in support of our own General Manager and Boot Camp Coach, Kate Smith, who was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 38. This past summer, Kate participated in the Team Phoenix program and completed a 14-week training program that ended with a sprint triathlon finish.
Team Phoenix started in 2011 with less than a dozen participants. 2017’s team had over 60 participants. Their need for donations to support team training, facility rentals, equipment, jerseys, race entries and more is growing every year. We are honored to work with this amazing organization once again and raise funds for this program that supports local women from the greater Milwaukee area!
Fun Fact! Team Phoenix was the recipient of Wild’s 2015 Boot Camp for Boobies fundraising event… which was how Coach Kate knew about the program! Within weeks of diagnosis, Kate reached out to the Team Phoenix Program Coordinator she had worked with for that event and solidified her plans on participating with Team Phoenix after her cancer treatment.
