Athletes 4 Cancer is dedicated to enriching lives impacted by cancer through the healing power of the elements and the tenacity of the human spirit. Essentially, Athletes 4 Cancer rebuilds lives after cancer.
Athletes 4 Cancer focuses on rebuilding and renewing lives after cancer through outdoor adventure.
We recognize an immediate need for viable resources and survivorship-focused programs in our community. Why? Cancer often leaves behind scars that are often more severe than the fight itself. Athletes for Cancer is focused on fostering programs that help survivors thrive in life, not just survive.

Koru Survivorship Program
Our KORU Survivorship Program is a 6-day adventure camp that introduces survivors to the snow or ocean environment, empowering them to find healing, strength and achievement through surfing, standup paddling, outrigger canoeing, snowboarding, and other outdoor adventures.
Our goal after camp is to transform survivor outlook on life, empower them to find confidence to thrive as they move forward in life, and inspire others facing cancer to do the same. We like to tell people that we empower survivors to discover their ass-kicking potential.
