BENEFITING: STUPID CANCER

James Bengala

THE STORY:

3,000 Waves was born to raise money to fight cancer through the love of surfing. The objective is simple: surf 3,000 waves in 30 days to raise $100,000. I will cover 750 miles of California coastline in a rented RV, starting in San Francisco and ending in San Diego. I will stop in many of the surf communities along the way and connect with local cancer fighting non-profits. My budget for the project is approximately $3,000 which I will be funding personally. I’m counting on the local communities, large surf industry companies and an extended social media marketing campaign to help us achieve our goal of $100,000 to fight cancer.

The reason I wanted to launch this project was to combine two passions in my life:  Giving Back to Community + Surfing.  I picked Cancer in Young Adults due to the growing number of diagnoses and lack of support, resources, and awareness for this demogrpahic...not to mention I'm a member of this age bracket, ages 15-39.  A handful of my friends, family members, former teammates and colleagues in this group have battled a variety of cancers ...this project is to help them and many, many others.

Stupid Cancer is the beneficiary of this fundraising campaign.  They are the largest charity that comprehensively addresses young adult cancer through advocacy, research, support, outreach, awareness, mobile health and social media. Their innovative, award-winning and evidence-based programs and services serve as a global bullhorn to propel the young adult cancer movement forward. They are a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organizatoin and DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
