Caroline “Liner” Lee was on Wipeout. Then got cancer. Thus, the name, Wipeout Cancer.
Wipeout Cancer is an initiative to increase cancer awareness and give back to the cancer community. Our goal is to raise $50,000 in 5 years. Why $50,000? That’s how much Liner won on Wipeout. Why 5 years? This is the standard time measure of cancer survival rates.
With this fundraising goal in mind, Liner reached out to a few friends to share the idea of a raising $10,000 a year through a Sports Day event. In 2013, our focus was to run a fun filled quality event and we exceeded our expectations. In 2014, we are primed to do it again. Future plans for Wipeout Cancer are in the works and will be announced soon. Suggestions are welcome!
