The Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Classic is dedicated to my mom and one of Operation Step-Up, Inc. CO-Founders; the late Barbara Howard Reece. She was a Mother, Wife, Businesswoman, Community Advocate, Singer, and fighter against Breast Cancer and Multiple Sclerosis for 12 years. Operation Step-Up, Inc. which was founded by Mrs. Reece and Dr. Steven Reece, Sr. in 1965 and has provided over $1.8 million in scholarship funds to youth over the years. Our Inaugural Breast Cancer Awareness Classic in Orlando, Fl. is and extension of our other signature events; The King Classic, The Dream is Real Weekend, and The Leadership Conference in Ohio. Just like Barbara Howard Reece there are many families who have family members that are battling Breast Cancer or have passed away. We must continue to fight for our family members who live with Breast Cancer. We dedicate this Inaugural Breast Cancer Awareness Classic to our lost loved ones and Breast Cancer survivors.
