Sports Day for Kids
Sports Day for Kids is a free event hosted by Wipeout Cancer for kids living with cancer and their families to participate in team sports that they may not be able to with their existing treatment and care regimes. We provide a safe and fun environment for participants to learn and practice with sports programs at local colleges. This program is open to kids (ages 5 to 17 years old) living with cancer and their immediate family.
Our inaugural event co-hosted with Cancer CAREpoint was held on February 27, 2016 with the SJSU Football Team at Spartan Stadium. Each participant in the program had a chance to meet and greet several football players on the team and got to rotate through different skills stations and activities. At the end of the event, participants enjoyed snacks and social time with the team with lots of photo opportunities.
Health, safety and well-being are always our first priority. As we navigate this new world we are living in, we will be exploring options to bring Sports Day for Kids back to the community. Check back in the future for updates.
Sports Day for Charity
Caroline “Liner” Lee won Wipeout and then got cancer – hence the name Wipeout Cancer. Sports Day for Charity is our primary fundraising activity benefiting Sports Day for Kids living with cancer and other organization supporting cancer services.
Wipeout Cancer’s Sports Day for Charity began in 2013 as an annual fundraising event. In its prime, the event hosted over 1000 participants and volunteers and raised over $25,000 to support local cancer resources. It has been 5 years since we last hosted this event!
The event has consisted of sports Liner enjoys: volleyball, cycling, and obstacle courses.
In 2022, we brought the event back with the objective to bring our community together – to reflect on the past, reconnect with each other, and reap new joys! On July 30, 2022, we held Sports Day for Charity as a fundraiser, but on a much smaller scale. Benefactors this year included AACSN (Asian American Cancer Support Network), founded by the late Dr. Fidelia Butt and Cancer CAREpoint.
Thank you, EVERYONE, for coming out to participate! After so many years and the pandemic, it was wonderful to see so many familiar and smiling faces. Despite only 2 months of planning, we had a great turnout – 39 volleyball teams and 100+ kids on the obstacle course, all supported by our 80+ volunteers!!! We’ve posted pictures from the event that you can find below with some pics on our Facebook and Instagram pages. Special thanks to Event Day Photographers: John Hopkins, Brett Loo, Garrison Wu.
