Boards of Hope
July 12-13, 2014
Boards of Hope is a project that brings artists and the boards we ride together for an empowering display of art, healing, and action sports. Boards of Hope began from the hospital bed of 19-year old Scott Farman, fighting for his life with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. Scott turned to art for emotional release & when confined in the hospital.
In the process, Scott created powerful works of art that today remain his legacy and inspiration for others to find healing through art & the outdoors. Scott's legacy continues today in our survivorship camps with an art studio for participants' to express own personal journey with cancer.
2014 Boards of Hope is seeking Artists for 2014 submissions!
Professional artsits are invited to submit works. Please email tonia @ athletes4cancer.org for more info.
