For the third year in a row, SebastianStrong Foundation teamed up with the Castaways Against Cancer to expand their fundraising efforts to include a greater focus on childhood cancer specifically. This year’s 160-mile, 7-day journey by kayak, from Miami to Key West, raised upwards of $100K thanks to the dedication & generosity of our supporters.

Castaways Against Cancer: 2019 No Surrender Tour

We are so excited to announce that thanks to the generosity of so many of you we surpassed our fundraising goal of $100K through our Castaways Against Cancer Campaign! Stay tuned for our upcoming announcement on how these funds will be put to work to find less toxic, more targeted cures. Click HERE for a quick video recap of this year’s 160-mile, 7-day journey by kayak from Miami to Key West. Thanks to all who donated, came out to the launch, volunteered their time to deliver meals to the paddlers on the water, and drove all the way down to Key West just to be there when we made land. Your support means everything and we couldn’t do this without you.
