Surfing for Hope will take place on September 20th and 21st, 2013, in Avila Beach and Pismo Beach, California. This event is designed to help inspire people challenged by cancer through the positive energy of surfing. Surfing is the ideal format to help people in this situation by showing how positive and healthful our sport is and it gives the surfing community the opportunity to give back to people in need by sharing what we love.

All proceeds from Surfing for Hope will benefit the Hearst Cancer Resource Center (HCRC) at French Hospital Medical Center in San Luis Obispo, California. In 2012, the inaugural event raised more than $61,000 for the HCRC and the Center’s Angel of Hope Fund, which proceeds financial assistance to cancer patients.

The event will begin on Friday, September 20th with a memorial paddle out at Avila Beach to honor friends and loved ones who have lost their battle with cancer. After the paddle out, a Benefit Dinner featuring foods and wines of the Central Coast, an auction, and live music will take place at the breathtaking Avila Beach Golf Resort.

On Saturday, September 21st, a longboard Surf Contest and Health Fair will be held at the Pismo Beach pier. The contest will be open to ages 10 and up with a variety of divisions. The Health Fair will focus on business and groups which support, educate and help people who are going through the cancer experience.

Members of the local community have come together with French Hospital to support the HCRC by creating Surfing for Hope. We are very excited about our second year and hope you will join us for this incredible event to support people and families who are challenged by cancer.
