Flock Cancer Idaho’s mission is to raise funds to support breast cancer fighters, survivors, families, and programs in the Treasure Valley. With no paid staff, 100% of the proceeds from the Flock Cancer Event directly go into the programs that will benefit women with this disease. In our first two years, we have raised close to $100k for our charity partners. We continue to ensure we find partnerships that directly support our mission to raise awareness and help detect and support programs related to breast cancer in the Treasure Valley.
In our first two years, we’ve partnered with two amazing programs. The YMCA Oncology Program in Boise is an amazing therapeutic program for women of all cancers to benefit from and is a program that our Founder, Leslie Scantling, holds close to her heart. The Oncology Recovery Program is designed to meet the needs of cancer survivors before, during, and/or after treatment in a safe and supportive environment. Research shows that when geared specifically to the patient, exercise is safe for all physical levels of ability.
Flock Cancer Idaho has also supported the amazing team at Bustin Out Of Boise. They are a local non-profit started about 15 years ago by a group of friends who work at Alaska Airlines. They call themselves a Gap Filler and provide any needed products or services to families fighting cancer. They walk alongside women during treatment and find out what each family needs so that those families can focus on healing during their treatment. https://www.bustinoutofboise.org
