Courageous Women Fearless Living 2015

Give Women with Cancer the gift of Courage.

We're raising $2500 to pay travel expenses for Courageous Women, Fearless Living retreat attendees!

The Challenge:

Courageous Women, Fearless Living is a 5-day retreat that guides, teaches and empowers women who have been touched by cancer. The program provides attendees with life-long lessons and strategies to skillfully relate with fear, stress and pain, and to discover courage, relaxation and joy. Women from all over the world travel to attend the retreat here in the Red Feather Lakes, Colorado, but cancer can be incredibly expensive, even with insurance.
Donations will help women who have received scholarships, but cannot afford the additional cost of travel, to attend. It will positively impact their lives forever. It's a powerful gift of courage, fearlessness, and friendship that every dollar donated will make possible. Funds raised will directly benefit 4 or 5 women who would not otherwise be financially able to attend. 

How Much?



August 31, 2015


Four or five women with cancer - active or in remission - who have received scholarships, will have their travel expense paid, allowing them to attend the 2015 Courageous Women, Fearless Living retreat. 

Extra Funds Use:

Additional funds will be used to subsidize future airfare assistance for the 2016 retreat and beyond.
