Huntington Beach, CA – December 7, 2011 – Mammograms In Action (MIA), a Southern California based nonprofit breast cancer organization, announced today that they are launching their first MIA Breast Health Care Grant program for the 2012-2013 grant season.
Designed to support community based non-profit breast centers nationwide, these funds are now available to qualified organizations thru the grant application process. Grantees must be able to administer and/or manage the MIA grant funds to support qualified women and men who need screening and/or diagnostic procedures in the prevention of breast cancer.
The Request for Applications (RFA) with specific guidelines on how to apply for a MIA Breast Health Care Grant is available online at http://www.mammogramsinaction.org/apply-for-a-grant
Mammograms In Action began in 2009 and has already awarded $30,000 in grants to breast centers with an additional $200,000 allocated for the 2012-2013 grant season. These funds have primarily been raised thru the grassroots efforts driven by athletes and supporters in the CrossFit community. The Pink Bra Tour and Amazing Grace Barbells for Boobs events this past October (www.barbellsforboobs.org) involved over 12,000 participants across 395 CrossFit affiliates in 45 states and 5 countries around the globe, raising a total of $600,000 for the breast cancer cause.
“Every man and woman deserves the opportunity to be screened for breast cancer and we have the ability to take action and reach thousands of underserved individuals nationwide, “ said Zionna Munoz, president and founder of Mammograms In Action. “Funding for screenings and diagnostic procedures is not only a necessity, but really does save lives. Our mission is possible, our message is simple: Save a pair, save a life.”
