Since the paddles were first picked up, the mission of the Castaways Against Cancer has been to help find a cure and to honor those who’ve fought the fight.

As the team approaches its 20th-summer, the message is clear - there is #NoSurrender.

Today, big news for the Castaways on several fronts.

In conjunction with the launch of the 20th-annual mission of the Castaways Against Cancer, the team is proud to announce the official relaunch of our website,

Thanks to the brilliant minds at CLT CREATIVE and COASTAL COPACETIC, you will find a clean, modern look and easy navigation. It’s packed with more details about the paddlers, better recognition of sponsors and a more poignant “In Honor” page.

With this website relaunch, the team is officially launching the 20th-annual mission – the #NoSurrenderTour. Our goal is to raise north of $100,000 this year in the fight against cancer.
