Another Successful Hop Against Breast Cancer!

Hola Hoppers!

As we say goodbye to 2016 and welcome in 2017, we look back at all the great
things that happened in the year. Today we’ll highlight the results of our
annual Pink October campaign.

Yes Hoppers, this past October marked our sixth straight year participating
in the fight against Breast Cancer. It was another great Hop against this
disease and we owe many thanks to all of you amazing,  generous Hoppers who
continue to support this cause.

Pink October in Cozumel

Let’s take a little time to look back at what a big impact you made, as you
hopped with us against breast cancer.  After six years hopping against
Breast cancer, we have been able to raise thousands of Pesos that have gone
directly to local Breast Cancer patients here on the island.  As many of you
already know, we always match the amount raised in sales of our Pink October
Merchandise sold, and this year was no exception.

Thinking locally and raising awareness globally!

With our limited edition Pink Cozumel Bar Hop Merchandise hopping off the
shelves and into your wardrobe, we were able to raise a significant amountCozumel Bar Hop - Breast Cancer fundraiser
that is helping local women here on the island. After a successful month, we
met with the local Integral Family Development system, (DIF) and handed over
the funds that were raised and matched by Cozumel Bar Hop.

Thanks to you hoppers, we were able to raise $9000 Pesos, which directly
impacts the lives of 3 women (selected by the DIF) here on the island who
are fighting against this horrible disease. The money donated is being put
to use to help these women with their cancer treatments, Doctor visits,
medications and so forth.

A special thanks to all you Fo-Hos

With your help, we’ve been able to continue to build awareness and directly
impact the lives of cancer victims here in Cozumel. So Hoppers, we want to
thank you again for your help in the Hop against breast cancer, as you have
brought relief and hope to so many!

While we did raise a significant amount this time around, the fight againstCozumel Bar Hop
breast cancer is ongoing and we look forward to Hopping against Breast
Cancer again this coming October.  If you’d like to help us in our Hop
against Breast Cancer, be prepared in October to purchase your Pink Bar Hop

Hola October! Cozumel Bar Hop!

Adios September, Hola October!

 Hola Hoppers! We had a great September here in Cozumel with all of the awesome Cultural Events and festivities. We know many of you had a great time with us as well and we loved having you! So moving on, we are saying Adios to September once again and Hola to October! All of you Hoppers out there probably already know that October is one of our favorite months here in Cozumel, and we will be glad to tell you all about some of the things that make October so important to us!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As many of you hoppers already know, we love to give back to our community and we like Cozumelto look for good opportunities to do so. October is one of our favorite months because it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Due to that, we have been active participants in Breast Cancer Awareness for many years and continue to participate each year. Many people know a little bit about Breast Cancer but this month but we definitely want to help people learn and understand more about the disease which affects so many lives.

Now, while many people do know about the disease it is very important that everyone takes necessary steps in order to detect the disease in its early stages. Just as important as taking steps for early detection it is definitely important to look into what factors can increase or decrease your risk of Breast Cancer. For example, did you know that Breastfeeding can actually decrease your risk of breast cancer?  So take advantage of all the opportunities to learn more about Breast Cancer so that you can take steps to lower the risk to yourself or your loved ones.

Giving Back – Cozumel Bar Hop Fundraiser

As previously mentioned, we love to give back and this is one way we love to do that. Oct. 1st marks our 6th straight year participating in the fight against breast Cancer with our Cozumel Bar Hop Breast Cancer Fundraiser.  We are proud to share this opportunity with all of you Hoppers.  So here is a quick breakdown of what we have done and how this works.

Hop Against Breast Cancer

Cozumel ToursAs we hop against breast cancer and with your help, we have successfully donated thousands to those battling Breast Cancer. 2011 marked our first year participating in the fight against breast cancer and since then we have been able to locally help many Women in their struggle.  For that reason, starting again Oct 1st we will again be offering limited edition Pink Cozumel Bar Hop T-shirts for purchase of which all sales will go directly to the DIF of Cozumel. Of all the sales each year Cozumel Bar Hop matches that amount and it is donated.  So if we raise $7000 we will donate $14,000.

Now this money goes directly to the local DIF which is the system for Integral Family Development. They select 3 women locally who are in need of help in their fight against breast Cancer. Now while this is normally something that is done anonymously, we have actually been allowed to meet and put faces to these women who are struggling against breast cancer. These donations go towards their treatments, medications, Doctor Visits and more. This fact makes this all the more significant for us here at Cozumel Bar Hop. To give you an idea here is what we have successfully donated the last few years:

  • 2015 – $15,000 donated
  • 2014 – $13,000 donated
  • 2013 – $10,000 donated

As you can see we have continued to build awareness and increase what has been raised each year and it is all thanks to you are fellow Hoppers! So we want to thank you again for your help and we invite you to continue to help us raise awareness and lend a hand to those who are battling against this disease.  So if you want to help us in our Hop against Breast Cancer, you can purchase your Pink Bar Hop t-shirt while hopping with us.

We hope to top last year’s donation, and to do that we need your help! So, make sure to follow us on social Media and to help us get the word out. Retweet this post to all of your friends on Twitter. Share and +1 this on Google+ and like and follow us on Facebook. Visit our website.
