The cause is dear to Beefy’s heart. Beefy's Mom, Erin, was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 25, and they have worked together to raise close to $20,000 for breast cancer causes. Beefy wants to put his popularity to use by creating fun family events around the country to encourage the nation to 'Be Healthy. Get Active. Skate!'
Beefy’s goal is raise $10,000 to begin a nationwide tour to promote early detection and educate women in their teens and 20s about breast cancer. Beefy's journey will be created into a documentary to share with all of his fans and increase breast cancer awareness.
