All proceeds from the event will go to support Altru’s Breast Cancer Coalition. The Breast Cancer Coalition was started in 1995 with a grant from Altru Health Foundation. The Coalition’s purpose is to provide mammograms to women who have no health insurance or cannot afford to pay for a mammogram. Women who meet certain financial criteria pay only $5 for a mammogram. The Coalition has also used funds to purchase education materials and to support breast cancer awareness activities in the community.

We will be serving BBQ and Chips. This event is free to all who attend the Rockin’ Rollin’ Rally – servings are limited to 1 per person and quantities are limited.
