Bustin’ Out of Boise

Bustin’ Out Of Boise is a fun-loving group of women volunteers dedicated to making our world a better place. Last year, Bustin’ Out Of Boise spent over $10,000 locally to help organizations that support women’s issues such as the St. Luke’s Breast Cancer Center, Saint Alphonsus Mobile Mammography Unit, The Women’s and Children’s Alliance, The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, The American Heart Association’s Heart Walk & the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walk.

Our primary goal as we continue to grow is to raise funds to help individual women who are going through cancer treatments by providing housecleaning services, childcare, food, transportation to appointments and other needs.

We started as a group of friends holding fundraisers to attend the Susan G. Komen 3 Day Walk For The Cure and we still love the camaraderie of the walks, but were expanding to include direct local help to women and we’re always looking for new friends who want to help us. We are hoping to partner with organizations that can help us raise the funds to meet our goal of helping as many women as possible through the horrible experience of cancer. We want to be able to ease the burden of the day to day necessities so they can focus on treatment and healing.
