JAM Sessions is a weekly series of events, classes, and discussions to help members of the outdoor community feel more connected. JAM Collective is dedicated to amplifying the voices and stories of nonprofits, BIPOC, and underrepresented communities, as a part of JAM Sessions.
Send It Foundation provides free adventure programs for young adult cancer fighters and survivors (ages 21-40); bringing strength, positivity and community to the fight for life. Programs are designed around activities like skiing, surfing, mountain biking, climbing, and backpacking; creating a vital community through shared experience.
“The outdoors is an avenue for participants to discover personal strength through empowering activities – there’s nothing more exhilarating than taking your first turns on skis or catching a wave,” said Katie Schou, executive director of Send It Foundation. “Sharing these experiences with new friends who have gone through something similar creates a sense of camaraderie and community that is essential through times of adversity. These moments of play, joy, laughter, and connection are fueling and really shift the lens from fear and loss that a cancer diagnosis ignites, towards one of hope and possibility.”
“We are grateful to JAM Collective for providing this platform for us to connect and share our efforts with the outdoor community,” said Kerry Camisa, development director of Send It Foundation. “We are excited to expand our community and broaden the organization’s brand awareness.”
