More on the Ocean of Hope& Sarcoma Alliance:
This is a fundraising event for The Ocean of Hope Campaign. Please support our raffle and t-shirt sales and feel free to donate at registration. All donations are tax deductible and help to fund second opinion grants for sarcoma cancer patients through the Sarcoma Alliance. Sarcoma is a rare, often very quick and aggressive form of cancer that can affect most tissues in the body. The Ocean of Hope Team consists of paddlers who dedicate their training and racing to raising money for the Sarcoma Alliance, a non-profit organization that helps those fighting cancer. These paddlers race in some of the most contested and competitive races in California and Hawaii throughout the summer months, while also raising awareness about sarcoma cancers. Last year, our team raised over $80,000; in the 11 years since its inception, the Ocean of Hope has donated almost $1 million dollars to cancer patients fighting this deadly disease. We are not a big corporate charity with all the overhead costs and CEO expenses. Our efforts are grassroots and rely both on the strong dedication of our paddlers and the generous support of people like you.
If you have any questions, comments or suggestions for the race, please feel free to send me a message. Feel free to pass ths along to anyone you know who may be interested. Thanks for all your support; I hope to see you there!
