Athletes 4 Cancer focuses on renewing, rebuilding, and restarting 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.
What we do:
Athletes for Cancer runs adventure-therapy retreats that promote a healthy model for survivorship, aiming to grow survivor confidence and self-esteem by providing an attainable platform for personal success, self-growth, and achievement.
Our newest camp program is Snowboarding on beautiful Mt. Hood! We are working with Mt. Hood Meadows to offer a safe, supportive and FUN experience for cancer fighters and survivors! The first camp is scheduled for April 15-21, 2012.

If you know someone facing the challenges of cancer and survivorship, have them take a look at our programs. We welcome survivors of all athletic abilities between 18 and 40 to apply to attend for a life-transforming experience. Here is an application for camp. Here is more info on our program.
