After the successful first year fundraiser for breast cancer through Breast 4 Breasts, TNAQ head coach Marshall Goldman was very pleased with results for the second annual “Back 4 Breasts” as they had nearly 100 participants and raised about $5,000 for the Breast Health Outreach Program at the UT Medical Center Institute.

Hosted by Pan Pac Champion Maya DiRado and SEC Champion Sean Lehane, the kids really enjoyed their time at the clinic as Sean mixed in some kid friendly ball exercises to help break down the stroke more and Maya shared a heart touching story of her mother’s diagnoses almost 13 years ago. Thankfully, her mother remains in remission.

With this success, next year’s even will be a butterfly breast cancer clinic to help raise money for breast cancer education and awareness.
