Our fundraising event is an elegant evening of dinner, dancing, cocktails, auctions, incredible raffles and much more to support young adults managing a cancer diagnosis. The CHSCF Gala is held annually, in March, and promises to be a night you’ll never forget!
Thus far, the CHSCF Gala has raised over $500,000. These donations have allowed us to provide our signature camp program, Base2Summit, to young adults each summer. Based on demand, we have answered the call to increase the number of camp weeks. We are also looking to the future and creating a leadership program for alumni. This leadership program will highlight personal and professional growth with the intent of alumni supporting Base2Summit as future staff.
“Base2Summit provided me with a safe space to explore not only new activities and places, but also to share my own experiences in dealing with cancer.”
– Denisse, B2S participant.
The three tenets of wellness, adventure, and connection drives all of our programming. This focus guides us as we offer information bags at Michigan hospitals and cancer centers designed for early treatment. Our support continues with scholarships for higher learning and travel expenses to survivorship programs across the US. While we believe strongly in our Base2Summit program, we also recognize every cancer survivor has specific needs. We are here to support them where they are in their journey.
“Thank you and CHSCF SO SO much for the travel scholarship!!! I am so thankful to you all for helping me make this trip happen! I am just so excited right now!!”
– Kristin, CHSCF traveler.
“I am so grateful to have won your scholarship! Reaching a higher education is one of my greatest goals and this college scholarship will help me reach my summit!”
