These lovely ladies joined our #Dare2Tutu campaign this year, donned a tutu, rocked out to a vigorous workout while raising money for breast cancer! Thank you, thank you, thank you. AND, to The Sports Barre in Jersey City, we just sent you a basketful of gratitude for organizing this event! We hope you think of us as much as we’ll think of you when we see these great pictures!
Behind the scenes was a very special woman, Meredith Fortier, who worked diligently to make the event a success; thank you for your dedication to The Carey Foundation and those living with breast cancer. The funds raised will ease the stress of a breast cancer diagnosis by covering incidental costs not covered by health insurance. You’re the best!
Linda Carey is the co-creator of The Tutu Project and President of the Carey Foundation. Bob and Linda Carey have been together since 1986. When Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003, Bob decided to expand on an odd project he’d started: he’d taken a few pictures of himself in a pink tutu, and the unlikely images cheered Linda up and gave both of them something to focus on other than her diagnosis. Linda’s positive approach to living has become a beacon of hope for cancer patients across the world.
