Courageous Women Fearless Living 2017 Scholarship Fund

Help Courageous Women, Fearless Living fight cancer with compassion

Donate to the CWFL scholarship fund, to help women in need attend the 2017 retreat


The Challenge:

Courageous Women, Fearless Living is a 5-day retreat that guides, teaches and empowers women who have been touched by cancer. In 2017, CWFL celebrates its 11th year. 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.
To help attendees experiece the retreat, we're hoping to raise $3500, which will provide room and board scholarships. Help us make this amazing retreat possible for women touched by cancer.
