What We Do

Explore Our Programs

Send It provides outdoor adventures for young adult (ages 21-40) cancer patients and survivors, removing them from their cancer experience and creating the space to play, connect, and have fun in the outdoors. Send It programs are multi-day adventures in Lake Tahoe and the San Francisco Bay Area, designed around activities such as mountain biking, skiing, surfing, climbing and backpacking; creating a vital community through shared experience.

Join us on a 5-day/4-night backcountry adventure in Desolation Wilderness in the Sierras. This is a moderate to difficult 14-mile (round-trip) hike which passes through tranquil meadows, pine forest groves, and is surrounded by stunning granite peaks. Elevations range from 6,500 ft to almost 10,000 ft. While this is one of our more physically demanding programs, we encourage participants to push themselves and soak up the beauty of the Sierra Backcountry.
