288 Players Both Courses, East and West! Will be EPIC!
Becky Baker will always be our hero. We honor her in all that we do. Please read her story and share generously in 2021, as we strive to prevent the evil disease known as breast cancer.
Imagine the shock of learning that your loved one has been diagnosed with breast cancer, a disease you know little about. What would do? Would you be able to provide intelligent and educated support? Do you know enough?
Best-selling author Rick Baker launched The Becky Baker Foundation after his wife passed away from stage IV breast cancer, a disease he knew very little about when she was first diagnosed.
Since that fateful day, Rick has become an expert on breast cancer and shares here how you too can know enough to help prevent breast cancer in your loved one, or if already present, how to provide meaningful and powerful support that your family member needs to fight this evil disease.
Available in our online store. 100% of all proceeds pay for breast cancer screenings.
The Becky Baker Foundation gifts mammograms and thermograms to women in need but this is more about prevention than just receiving a free screening.
A breast cancer screening is just one piece of the prevention puzzle.
Therefore, we have developed our ‘Commitment to Prevention’ program to guide women to taking control of their health and lives to commit to preventing cancer as much as possible.
There are 3 steps to being considered for a mammogram or thermogram.
1) Fill out the screening request form HERE.
2) Once we receive your request we will reach out to discuss enrollment in our Commitment to Prevention Program. This is a fully online course with a plan that you will complete and submit online or email to DrBarb@BeckyBakerFoundation.org .
3) Join our mailing list to receive your FREE monthly tips about prevention.
Once you have completed all three of these steps we can add you to our queue of recipients in your area for a mammogram or thermogram.
Wednesday, December 2, was the FIRST ANNIVERSARY for WOOGLIN'S Deli at their new location on the corner of Barnes and Oro Blanco in Colorado Springs. Their owner decided to donate 25% of all the day's proceeds to The #BeckyBakerFdn, every penny going to provide free mammograms and thermograms for Colorado Springs women and men.
The dude himself, KELVIN, presented us with a check for $500 today which will save lives!
We at The #BeckyBakerFdn are so humbled that Kelvin, Todd and Jeremy would present us with the gift, especially when so many small businesses are struggling to just stay open! With indoor dining closed in COS, Kelvin and his crew are working tirelessly to provide the best take out menu in the Springs! He also has outdoor seating for the warmer days that are coming our way! Rick LOVES the Green Chili Burrito and the Reuben sandwich so head over right now to WOOGLIN'S and develop your own favorite!

Founder and Executive Director, Rick Baker, talks about the history of the Becky Baker Foundation and where it is headed today.
Becky's husband, Rick, launched what he has called the #Race4Prevention Tour after Becky passed away on Easter Sunday morning, 2017. One of the last things Becky said to Rick was that she was "Sad that no one would ever remember her name." Rick promised her that no one would ever "forget her name." So, he launched The Becky Baker Foundation and deposited the one-million-dollar life insurance check from Becky's policy into an account to pay for 5,000 free mammograms. He then wrapped his GTR and started driving the country. Along the way, he has distributed 70,000 pens, 2,000 shirts, and over 70,000 brochures, all with the message of free mammograms and thermograms. He drove over 34,000 miles through 37 states, making hundreds of new friends along the way. Today, the BBF has given away over 2,000 mammograms and Becky's name lives on.
This picture was taken at Tanglewood Golf Club in Clemmons, NC. at the Kate Reynolds Hospice Golf Tournament, an elite event held once a year in Winston-Salem, NC. The Becky Baker Foundation team won the event by 7 strokes, thanks mainly to World Long Drive Champion Jeff (Critter) Crittenden! Thanks Jeff, for taking time out of your busy schedule to put the Becky Baker Foundation on the NC golf map by winning the 4-person scramble event in a record 26 under par.
