On the morning of June 9th, Oscar Ortiz, Executive Director of the SebastianStrong Foundation & Sebastian’s Father, set off on a 160-mile, 7-day journey by sea to raise awareness & critically needed funding for childhood cancer research. Alongside 15 other kayakers, he faced thunderstorms, strong currents, wind, waves, and a scorching sun. While the journey produced blisters, sunburns, and aching muscles, there were also shared smiles, stories, and tears, as these amazing men & women spoke of the loved ones they paddled for. Every year the Castaways Against Cancer kayak for a cure and to honor those who have fought the fight. For the second year in a row, SebastianStrong Foundation has teamed up with the Castaways to expand their fundraising efforts to include a greater focus on childhood cancer specifically. Thank you to all who supported this campaign. For those who didn’t have the opportunity – it’s not too late to help us reach our $75,000 goal.
