We’ll be back in 2016!

Petals for the Cure will take a hiatus in 2015 as Anderson’s expands its presence into Virginia Beach with a new store in the Princess Anne area.  That said, we continue to be excited about the work that Beyond Boobs is doing in our Hampton Roads community and expect to resume our Ride in 2016.  Thank you so much for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you next year.

Together We Can “Petal” for the Cure!

Petals for the Cure was created with the goal to raise funds to help save lives which may have been lost due to breast cancer.  The benefitting organization, Beyond Boobs! is a breast health, not breast cancer, organization with a focus on health and wellness. The best defense against this disease is active participation in early detection techniques and healthy lifestyles. Further, the organization supports young women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and are in treatment or have completed treatment. That support includes mind, body and spirit, as all are affected throughout their journey.

So join us for a bike tour to help “petal” for the cure. There are 2 events on Saturday, October 4th, 2014. Both events beginning at 8am. A 7-mile “Fun Tour” that is great for families and a 22-mile bike tour that is for those who like a challenge. The bike tour will go throughout Newport News. Enjoy festivities at Anderson’s all day. This is a great experience for the whole family.
