Our Mission, Touring for a Cure

Team Bowditch Logo


Mission Statement:

For Team Bowditch to successfully journey across the United States on bicycles, East to West, while continually fund raising for Breast Cancer Research, with a monetary goal of $20,000 to be raised for the
Susan G. Komen Foundation


For those who have been following our Journey we thank you for your kind support and words of encouragement.   As you may have noticed from our remaining journey map our trip is quickly winding down as we approach or destination in San Diego.   Though we may arrive short of our monetary goal we appreciate all who have donated for this worthy cause.  Since our trip will be close to a 5,000 mile journey it would be great to meet 25% of our goal amount, (and match our mileage total),  and raise $5,000 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. If you can think of anyone who might have interest in our cause now would be a great time to send them a link to our site. 

                                                                                    Thank You. 
                                                                                 Team Bowditch

Current Donation Total: $4,000+ dollars:  
Effective December 27, 2009 we have a new Team Bowditch donation page located on the Susan G. Komen website.   This new donation page will allow those wishing to support our Team's goal by donating directly to Susan G. Komen, thus avoiding any handling fees associated with using PayPal.

We would appreciate all future donations specifically for Susan G. Komen be made through their web site per the link on our donate page (or click donation thermometer). We have now transferred most all funds raised and donated through our Paypal account over to Susan G. Komen.

Thank You, Team Bowditch
