Survivors & S’mores

The original mAss Kicker himself

San Diego – Mission Beach – May 25, 2012
What do you get when you combine an evening of sand, Survivors & s’mores? The 1st Annual YACS* Bonfire & Soiree, of course!

Our Soiree came complete with an amazing all-star lineup of cancer rockstars! Not only were we lucky enough to have Jenna Catalona from First Descents in town with the FD Mobile, but Eric Galvez, founder of mAss Kickers Foundation, Brandon Bethea, founder of Fin Forward, Amanda Hitt, founder of IAP4P & Trevor Jones, founder of Flex Watches all shared in the Survivor love… not to mention an eclectic group of Survivors, caregivers & advocates representing various Survivor organizations such as Stupid Cancer, LLS, Relay For Life, Keep A Breast & Young Survival Coalition.

Some of us have known each other for years, while some of us were meeting for the first time that night. Either way, regardless of our unique backgrounds, diagnoses or personal connections to cancer, we all came together to make friends, spread awareness & enjoy yet another successful San Diego Survivor event!

There’s something incredibly empowering about being in the presence of this many fearless, genuinely positive young adults who are all 100% committed to fighting cancer & celebrating Survivorship… it fills you with an energy that you can’t help but share with everyone around you. Our bonfire was exactly that… the s’mores were just icing on the cake! 🙂
