Livestrong Day 2010 Event

"The Carolinas Care" Event

This year's Livestrong Day (October 2nd), Livestrong South Carolina will be teaming up with Livestrong North Carolina, at the Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC for some Whitewater Rafting, Zip Line, Mountain Biking, etc. The idea for this year's event is to demonstrate "Living Strong". We will qualify to receive group rates and all day passes for the various adventures so we'll divide the cost among the group. (There are some fundraising opportunities before the date and we will apply these funds to the overall cost of the trip). If you would be interested in joining us for a day of celebrating life (and/or helping us raise the funds to apply towards the cost of the adventure that will help cancer fighters/survivors & caregivers to attend), please email or visit
NOTE: We are making plans now to join up with other Livestrong Groups throughout SC, meet up with North Carolina's Livestrong Group/Groups to make this a "Carolina" Event. More info to follow that will include trip fees, deadlines, additional contact emails, etc. (as well as, any fundraising events). Again for immediate interest from Livestrong SC, you can email
or Visit we will need to confirm the count several weeks prior in order to confirm reservations so there will be a deadline to sign up.(Also, If you do not feel you would be able to participate in some of the adventures we will be participating in, you will be able to pick and choose your events while there or feel free to just come and hang out).

(Will post contact info for Livestrong North Carolina soon)

Come and Livestrong with us!
