HELP A CANCER SURVIVOR SOAK UP LIFE IN THE FULLEST. TOWEL INCLUDED.
We Are Ocean introduces survivors to the restorative power of the ocean. Minerals found in the water detoxify and enhance immunity. The ocean itself has a proven emotional lift that speeds healing. It’s why We Are Ocean participants surf, health sail, paddle, swim and dive—free of charge. To take part, go ahead and apply for our next adventure. Once you hit the water, your future will be brighter, healthier and possibly even coconut scented.
Newport Beach native Jack Shimko founded WE ARE OCEAN after bucking the tide of his 2009 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma diagnosis by surfing, swimming and paddling his way to recovery. A lifelong waterman, Jack also launched the fundraising effort Paddle2Live. Paddle boarding thousands of miles, he’s raised awareness and funds in partnership with the John Wayne Cancer Foundation, LIVESTRONG, and UCLA’s Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation.
Partnering with Hurley, Ritual Wellness (organic juices), Raw Elements (sun screen) and Freestyle USA (watches), WE ARE OCEAN is launching as a hub for post-treatment survivors. Not just an adventure or a cause, WE ARE OCEAN is a community. Get involved. Together we can offer the tools, education and inspiration for survivors to beat the odds by living a healthy lifestyle. That’s something everyone can get on board with.
We’ve only just started to build the WE ARE OCEAN community. Sign up below to keep in touch as we grow.
