Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer

The PDGA is continuing its initiative this year to increase women’s participation in disc golf events while raising money for an extremely important cause, the fight against breast cancer. During the month of October, the PDGA pledges to donate two dollars to the Young Survival Coalition for every female that plays in a PDGA sanctioned event.

The month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the United States, and to honor this, Prodigy Disc and the PDGA partnered up in 2013 in a fundraising effort to help fight this dreaded disease that affects the lives of so many. 

In 2013, there were approximately 232,000 new cases of breast cancer and almost 40,000 deaths. The chance of a woman having breast cancer in her life is about one in eight.  Breast cancer is treatable when detected early.  The best method of detection is through self-exams. Awareness through education and promotions is the key to more women learning how and why to do self-exams.
