About Us

Caroline “Liner” Lee was on Wipeout. Then got cancer. Thus, the name, Wipeout Cancer.

Wipeout Cancer is an initiative that started in 2013 to increase cancer awareness and give back to the cancer community.  Our goal was to raise $50,000 in 5 years.  Why $50,000?  That’s how much Liner won on the TV Show, Wipeout.  Why 5 years?  This is the standard time measure of cancer survival rates.

Within 3 years, we reached our goal of $50,000!!  This could not have been done without the dedication and support of our family and friends.

We’ve made our fundraising goal, and we’ve done it within our timeframe.    We are shifting our organizational objective from purely fundraising to providing sporting opportunities for kids with cancer.  We piloted an idea last year – Sports Day for Kids – with the SJSU Football team.  Both the kids and players had a great time, and we hope to do a lot more events like this in the future.

Since we’ve become an official non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) status, we’re able to continue to raise $$ for our children’s events, donate to local cancer support organizations, and provide our generous sponsors with a tax deduction!  Be on the lookout for additional events for kids living with cancer.
