Community Involvement

Become a SU4C Partner!

No one is free from the wrath of cancer – not men nor women, young nor old, black nor white.

Cancer doesn’t discriminate, it chooses its victims at random and without warning. Cancer can devastate families and rip the life right out from under you. Sails Up 4 Cancer is a non-profit corporation founded by a two-time cancer survivor who has an intimate relationship with cancer and cancer patients.

Sails Up 4 Cancer is reaching out to Yacht Clubs and sailing organizations for a unique opportunity. Simply put – Join our Team! As you will see in the Partnership Outline, Sails Up 4 Cancer needs your help to, in turn, help people battling cancer survive.

Survival means many things – not just continuing to live.

Sails Up 4 Cancer works to:

  • Alleviate stress and despair that comes from loss of income and additional financial burdens
  • Share educational resources and treatment options for those fighting
  • Raise much-needed funds for Cancer care, cure and research

Working with SU4C, a recognized 501(c) 3 non-profit, will allow you to run your regatta plus add a fundraising component specific to the needs of your community and the needs of your friends and neighbors.

Working with SU4C means there is not a top heavy corporation accepting your money without a clue as to where the donation goes. After all your hard work, you deserve better. In short, work with us, decide where and how you would like to allocate the funds you raise, and allow Sails Up 4 Cancer a small percentage to continue with its mission.

To para-phrase a good friend, fellow sailor, and cancer survivor.
“I believe that it is vital for sailors to help society in ways outside the sport of sailing”.
~ Gary Jobson, America’s Cup Winner

I hope you enjoy the short DVD and Partnership Outline. We are available to answer all of your questions and look forward to hearing from you.

 Partnership Outline 

The France Foundation is Passionate About Helping Others and Giving Back to the Community!

On June 21-22, 2014, The France Foundation team provided “helping hands” at the 4th Annual Sails Up 4 Cancer Regatta held in beautiful Mystic Connecticutt. The regatta featured both spinnaker and cruising class sailboats and brought more than 300 people together for an amazing cause. The weekend included a special day for the Sunshine Kids complete with a sail on the historic sailboat Argia, swashbuckling pirates; a painting session courtesy of Florence Griswold Museum and music by the String Theory School of Music. The Post Regatta Shore Party was held under the “big top” where sailors and friends raised additional funds with a silent auction, and enjoyed dinner and a live band with dancing. The France Foundation was thrilled to be part of such a great cause and looks forward to giving back in years to come.
