Funmiles supports Bikers for Boobs 37 Square Miles Biker Rally | SOUALIGA NEWSDAY

SINT MAARTEN (PHILIPSBURG) – The Positive and Elektralyets Foundation hosted their Bikers for Boobs motorcycle rally on October 20th as part of their Breast Cancer Awareness calendar of events for the month of October with the Find it Feel it Fight it Breast Cancer Awareness campaign.

Funmiles was glad to support this event with sponsorship of 200 shirts, Funmiles hand towels and Pink Cardholders to Positive and Elektralyets Foundations. St. Maarten Area Manager of Funmiles, Cassandra Chun was happy to donate to this worthy cause.

This is the 9th annual Biker for Boobs rally hosted by the Caribbean Eagles St. Maarten Motor Bike Club in collaboration with the Positive and Elektralyets Foundations. President Jane Therond from the Caribbean Eagles St. Maarten motor bike club has been supporting the event from the onset.

“The dedication and effort that the Caribbean Eagles St. Maarten have been showing for this Breast Cancer Awareness movement has been synonymous with the slogan “Loud Pipes Saves Lives” said Caribbean Eagles President Jane Therond. Being breast aware is indeed important and we know that early detection can save lives she continued.

Mercedes “Elektra van der Waals-Wyatt also a Caribbean Eagle member, started the event before she could ride a Harley Davidson many years ago. “I love the sound the roaring engine makes and thought noise could wake up the people in my community to help break down the silence of Breast Cancer taboo in our island.

The Bikers for Boobs route took the bikers around the entire 37 square miles of St. Maarten, roaring through various districts and neighborhoods on the French and Dutch side of the island.

The Positive Foundation, President, Shelly Alphonso encouraged by the large turnout commented that the Bikers for Boobs Rally with riders wearing beautiful designed T-shirts sponsored by Funmiles featuring a breast cancer awareness message, is a unique and creative way to bring attention to Being Breast Aware. It is our hope that persons pay attention to the message and get checked early.

Through this unique and fun event, Funmiles was able to support the Breast cancer Awareness bike rally around the whole island. Participants of the bike rally included Caribbean Eagles, Riders on Two, Tribal Hogs and many independent bikers who also came out in great numbers to support the cause.

Funmiles Breast Cancer T-shirts will also be shared with visiting bikers from around the world during the annual BikeFest which is hosted annually by The Maarten Caribbean Eagles every November. The visiting bikers, as they travel back to their respective countries, will take with them the message of being Breast Aware.

The Positive and Elektralyets Foundations would like to thank Cassandra Chun of Funmiles for sponsoring Bikers for Boobs event, ILTT distributors of Fiji Water and Vitamalt for helping to keep the Bikers hydrated and to everyone that came out in support of the event as the foundations continue to advocate a call to action for breast cancer awareness with the slogan : “Find it Feel it and Fight it!”
