Mission/What We Do
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.
We recognize an immediate need for viable resources and survivorship-focused programs in our community. Cancer survivors face unique challenges after cancer, with life turning upside down physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Cancer may have spared these individual their lives, but the scars left behind are often more severe than the fight itself. Athletes 4 Cancer's primary program focus is helping young adults rebuild their lives after cancer.
We use adventure-based experiences such as surfing, outrigger canoeing, standup paddling, skiing and snowboarding, as channels of healing, achievement and life-renewal that treat the mind, body, and soul. Athletes 4 Cancer’s programs aim to help young survivors not just survive, but thrive in all aspects of life, inspiring others facing cancer to do the same.
