Simple Gestures. No Strings. Celebrate Life’s simple purpose is to offer assistance in unique and meaningful ways to enhance the lives of our family, friends, and neighbors affected by cancer in Sandpoint and its surrounding communities.
In 14 years, over $275,000 has been raised with 100% given directly back to our community. Currently we assist hundreds of individuals and families each year yet the need for Celebrate Life’s services continues to grow faster every year.
ONLY ONE FUNDRAISER EACH YEAR
Celebrate Life holds one fundraiser a year. Started in 2004, the Celebrate Life Fun Run/Walk is a run, walk, or ride across Sandpoint’s scenic Long Bridge. It is truly a gathering of family, friends, and neighbors doing just that - CELEBRATING LIFE! The first walk raised about $12,000. Currently the walk raises around $30,000 each year. Sadly that amount doesn’t keep up with the needs of our community.
