WHO WE ARE
Several years ago, MTB Cancer Foundation was created to serve the community. MTB provides alternative events throughout the year that raises cancer awareness and recognizes the important role of the individual in their fight against cancer. While our events continue to develop, we continue to provide entertainment and inspiration. Helping those diagnosed with cancer and cancer survivors has grown to become a permanent part of MTB and the community we serve.
WHAT WE DO
Our mission is to recognize and celebrate the brave men, women and children that are diagnosed with cancer and survivors by raising awareness through our events. Our events include the Hampton Roads cancer awareness fashion show where all the models are diagnosed with cancer and survivors, the Cruising for Cancer Tour which is the always fun pub crawl and the Raise Your Voice karaoke contest. Through our events, our goal is to raise funds to provide assistance for those in need for their daily living expenses.
