who we are
YEAR ROUND DEDICATION
The mission of the High Country Breast Cancer Foundation
is to support breast cancer patients, survivors, and their families
in the High Country of North Carolina.
who we are
Irene, our founder and president, promises that our foundation’s efforts are direct from wallet to patient. Therefore, she covers the cost of everything with earnings from her Real Estate business: The pink tents, our signature tutus, pink ducks, the free food we provide at community events, the race t-shirts and gift packets, the entertainment on race day, the advertising expenses, etc.
…that we receive from sponsors, fundraisers and donors goes to help those in need, right here in the High Country. Consider us your humble conduit between those in the community who can give and those in the community who need that gift.
…from 2017 to today. Irene, her board of directors and YOU – our neighbors – have come together to make sure that the Foundation accomplishes its mission: to help the local community and let those facing breast cancer know their community is fighting the fight with them.
As Treasurer of this amazing foundation, I am amazed at the generosity of all our volunteers and donors. As a woman, I feel blessed to be able to help other women in our community.
