Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our mission is to raise money for childhood cancer research by hosting family fun events that stimulate local tourism in our community. At the end of the year, we empty our coffers to make one donation to a specified research doctor. We save back enough to cover expenses for the next year and add to a savings account that supports local families who are in treatment.

We host family fun events, online fundraisers, and miscellaneous fundraisers as the opportunities arise.
