Between trees and ribbons: we climb against cancer.
We’re taking the fight against cancer to the trees on October 5th, 2017 for our first annual Climb Against Cancer event.
1 in 3 women and 1 in 2 men in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. There are our loved ones, our friends, us.
Climb with us in our mission to raise awareness and funds to put an end to cancer.
|We are excited to bring our community together to remember our loved ones, to honor cancer survivors, and to raise funds!|
This event is coordinated by volunteers who have worked incredibly hard to make this event possible. At $50 (plus $1 reservation fee) a ticket, 100% of ticket sales will go to the American Cancer Society to help lead the fight for a world without cancer.
We can't wait to have you join us! Teams will set up campsites for the night, and then take part in the fun—from climbing, organized activities, games, and a few surprises along the way!

Why this event is so important to everyone at the Adventure Park at Long Island
“When I turned 18, I got a job at The Adventure Park. Shortly after I was diagnosed with cancer.
I was very nervous to deliver this news to my new boss and co-workers because I was afraid of being a burden. I was scared they would regret hiring me. Little did I know that I was exactly where I needed to be. The Adventure Park was a constant support system for me, they were my backbone. As I went through treatment they continued to give me hours, they picked up the slack when I would call out last minute, even when I was sometimes so sick I couldn’t call.
Fast forward three years later, I’m still working at the park, and I’m cancer free. The park never gave up on me, even when I had given up on myself.
This fundraiser is a way to help out more people just like me. The staff of The Adventure Park is always looking for ways to give back, and now, we can Climb Against Cancer.”
