GIVE MORE THAN YOU RECEIVE
Our lives are more defined by what we give and who we help than what we receive. Let’s leave a legacy together.
All of our board members and volunteers have personal stories with cancer and the devastating effects it has had on their families and friends. From our Director, Bryan, who was diagnosed with colon/rectal cancer in October of 2011 and has lost his grandfather and brother to cancer, to Kurt Bestor who lost his brother to cancer and has spent countless hours helping raise money for cancer survivors and cancer research and Jenny Oaks Baker and her husband who have lost both of their mothers to cancer. Unfortunately, these stories are not unique as cancer affects as many as 1 in 3 men and only slightly less common for women. How can we help? How can we make a difference? Often simply reducing the financial burden or granting an amazing wish, or supporting the breakthrough research going on in our nation can be the very thing that brings hope and much-needed relief to those who need it most.
Whether it’s through our golf events, organized charity run events, or events like the Alaska Cruise with Mat & Savanna Shaw, or the Eastern Mediterranean & Holy Land Cruise with GENTRI, we have found a way to come together with you and others to make a difference today and for the future! Please consider donating or joining us at one of our upcoming events as we swing for those we love!
