The John Wayne Cancer Foundation, who has generously underwritten some of our survivorship programs, just kicked off a unique fundraising campaign — the Team Duke Vertical Challenge! The Vertical Challenge, or “How to fight cancer from a chairlift” empowers skiiers and snowboarders to fundraise while they shred at the mountain.
Here’s how it works: Skiiers/snowboarders measure and log the vertical feet they cover over the 3 months while recruiting donations from friends and family based on how much they ride. Very cool and fun!
Why we like the Team Duke Vertical Challenge: The funds raised go to programs like ours, that directly help people battling cancer RIGHT NOW. In fact, A4C is putting on our first SNOWBOARD Survivorship Camp this April! What a great fundraising program that might just help send someone to camp!
