Join us for Raft 4 Life: August 25-27, 2017

“I knew I was making progress when Tory said to me, ‘I forgot I had cancer for an entire day’ with happy tears rolling down her cheeks. My heart was full.” – Julie S.

If summer brings to mind fond memories of spending time outdoors, swapping stories by starlight with wonderful friends, laughter, and adventure, then Raft 4 Life is the perfect end-of-summer activity you don’t want to miss! Spend a weekend rafting down the American River and camping with other amazing friends, family members, patients, and survivors of angiosarcoma. Raise funds for research, be inspired, and enjoy nature!

“Raft 4 Life is a unique opportunity for AS families, both patients and caregivers, as well as surviving families to discuss their unique experiences and share emotional support in an environment that is not only a nonclinical setting, but a chance to bond with others going through similar struggles with this rare cancer.”
– Melissa González, Angiosarcoma Awareness President

A multitude of overnight options are available, including cabins, yurts, and traditional ‘stake-in-the-ground’ campsites. (And if rafting isn’t for you, come along and camp with us!)

Beyond Limits Adventures will guide us down a seven-mile stretch of the American River, including class 2-and 3- level rapids. No experience necessary, and a safety/training class is included prior to boarding your raft!

Lunch will be served as we float down the river, so you can keep your eyes focused on the beautiful natural fauna and flora, in addition to the breathtaking scenery.

After the rafting wraps up we’ll head back to camp for snacks, happy hour, dinner, dessert, and more fun by campfire.

If a weekend of bonding, laugher, and support sounds appealing, we hope you’ll join us for our fifth amazing event!
