About Surfing For Hope:
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.
