Together, WE CAN!
When we created Wipeout Cancer three years ago, our goal was to “raise $50,000 in 5 years”. Through the wonderful enthusiasm, support, and generosity of our friends and community, we have more than surpassed that goal! THANK YOU!!
Sports Day for Charity is an annual event filled with fun and activity to raise funds and awareness for cancer support. Caroline “Liner” Lee won Wipeout and then got cancer — hence the name Wipeout Cancer. Sports Day for Charity is our primary fundraising activity benefiting Cancer CAREpoint and Sports Day for Kids living with cancer. It consists of sports Liner enjoys: volleyball, cycling, and obstacle courses.
The volleyball format is a grass reverse co-ed 4’s tournament split into 4 divisions: Junior Girls, Friendship, Silver, and Gold. The cycling event is a road ride from SJSU through the scenic South Bay. Medium and long ride options are available. The obstacle course is for the kids (ages 4-12). It’s an opportunity for them to test their fitness and coordination abilities, and “play Wipeout”!
