be a booby hero!Nowadays, it seems that everyone and their mom is somehow affected by cancer. We hope that it directly affects neither you, nor your mom, but in any case, there are several ways you can do your part in the battle for the boobies.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

What: 5-Mile walk
When: Saturday, Oct. 18. Registration begins at 7 a.m., Rolling start between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m.
Where: Speedway Meadow, Golden Gate Park

Walk, run, skip, jump, hop – whatever, we don’t really care. Just join in. [1] A quick search on the website yielded 11 teams [2] from UC Berkeley, but you can also just show up with a group of buddies and buddettes. If breaking a sweat really isn’t your thing, volunteer to hand out water or be a sideline cheerleader (we joke not … peppy people in pink line the 5-mile path every year). Or just donate some moolah.

Save the Ta-tas

If you’re busy Saturday, you can still be a bro/bra (as in female bro … don’t worry, the punchline is coming up) and support (ha ha!) by purchasing and showing off some merch. Our one-stop-shops like Target [3] and Safeway [4] offer a couple of simple ways to help in the fight against breast cancer (i.e., buy stuff or just give ‘em money). If you’re not down with turning your entire apartment pink, the Save the Ta-tas Foundation [5] simply asks for your donations and your willingness to wear stuff that says “Save the Ta-tas.”

You can also read up on Susan G. Komen for the Cure [6] for more information on how you can help.
