Hello! I'm trying to raise $1700 to change someone's perspective on life. I am an Ambassador for Athletes 4 Cancer, a non-profit that rebuilds and renews lives after a cancer diagnosis through incredible outdoor experiences. Standup paddling, surfing, and outrigger canoeing have become channels of healing for young adults, combining the healing power of the ocean, the challenges of paddling for the first time, and overcoming the fear of water and waves (or falling off)... all as steps of achievement that can help them move beyond their cancer. 

Already there are over 80 people, all too young for cancer, on the waiting list to attend future camps -- camps that do not yet have funding. At least one of those people is someone dear to me whom I already know. Please help me pay the cost to send one more person to an Athletes 4 Cancer camp by making a donation. The process is fast, easy, and secure.

I truly appreciate any support you can provide. It is benefiting an incredible program. You can view it for yourself here: https://vimeo.com/athletes4cancer/campkoru. One of the participants from a past camp posted a beautiful note about their experience as well. I recommend reading it: http://athletes4cancer.wordpress.com/2012/04/17/eventsthatchangeyourlife/

If you can't make a donation at this point, help me reach my goal by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter!
Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to my page!

Thanks so much for your generosity!
