18 Retreats. 195 Retreat Families served. And OVER 3712 pieces of pizza were consumed. WHAT. A. SUMMER! The latest edition of The Wave newsletter includes an update from Executive Director Chris Woodruff, event updates, and a Retreat Family highlight!



Volunteers play a critical role in creating a retreat experience that provides joy and hope. You will be paired with a family living through childhood cancer to serve them with activities such as doing their laundry and dishes, playing games, and most of all, strengthening relationships. The week is full of extravagant service by creating environments where families living through childhood cancer can get away to rest, restore relationships, experience joy, and find hope in God!



On retreat, we call our volunteers "Family Partners." Family Partners can be a whole family, single adults, empty nesters, and students, too! Spending a week together at the beach while working together to create an incredible environment for "Retreat Families", the families we serve, gives volunteers in all walks of life the chance to build a community and gain life-long relationships.
