One Summit is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to build resilience in pediatric cancer patients and their families through experiential learning and mentorship with Navy SEALs, storytelling and community engagement.
All of the funds raised will support One Summit’s mission and programs, including Climb for Courage, an experiential learning approach to building resilience in pediatric cancer patients and their siblings. At Climb for Courage, little warriors are matched 1:1 with a Navy SEAL and guided through a day of indoor rock-climbing and a learning curriculum based on teamwork, goal setting and overcoming adversity. The experience, coupled with the long-lasting friendship formed with their Navy SEAL, provides each child with an additional source of strength and encouragement to fight cancer. Climb for Courage simultaneously provides each Navy SEAL mentor with the opportunity to reapply their knowledge and skills into a structured, community-based program.
Each year, One Summit's Climb for Courage and Climb Higher Boston programs impact over 50 MA-based pediatric cancer patients and their siblings.
