AYSF and everyone involved are pleased to officially support ThePinkBoat.org The mission of this foundation is to prevent and cure breast cancer and help save the lives of hundreds of thousands of women each year through sailing with the goal of raising $1 million for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. It’s a monumental goal that was set forward by creator and leader of the group, Thomas Watson.
Thomas started sailing later in life, be quoted as saying ”The first time I stepped on a boat, I knew I had been missing out on something”. The story of why he decided to risk his own life to bring awareness to such a cause is a much longer and more interesting story you can read about here http://www.thepinkboat.org/Mission.aspx

The entire group at AYSF whole-heartedly supports Thomas and his mission. Not only because cancer is a devastating disease that affects almost every human in some way but because our team was also formed on the individual goals of each member to pursue the dreams we’ve each set since first stepping on a boat. To have the opportunity to work with someone who has a dream to bring real awareness and support to fighting breast cancer and has the will to dedicate everything towards it is absolutely worth supporting.
So please, check out www.pinkboat.org to learn more about Thomas’s mision and how you can be a part of the fight against breast cancer.
