An Investment in Powerboating for a Cure is an Investment of a World without Breast Cancer

The Mid Atlantic Powerboating Association, Inc. also known as "MAPA" is a group of powerboat enthusiasts from Southeast Virginia, who in 2009 began to organize and promote poker runs, as well as other boating related events, that benefit various local and national charities. MAPA is run completely by volunteers and is qualified as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

At the heart of the 11th Annual Powerboating for a Cure is our commitment to Susan G. Komen for the Cure helping support people with breast cancer. Powerboating for a Cure and all the events surrounding it, help us make a difference in the lives of men and women. In 2017 & 2018, combined we donated $60,000 to Susan G. Komen and $10,000 to the AGC (Associated General Contractors) Scholarship Fund.  In addition to SGK and AGC, in 2014, the participants donated $5,700 to Grayson Kirby, a participant for many years who was severely injured in a car accident just prior to the event. To date , we have donated over $300,000 to Breast Cancer and Cancer Research, and $50,000 to the AGC Scholarship Fund for Workforce Development.  Come join us in 2019 for an outstanding year of giving to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Your generosity makes a huge difference for many.
