Cruzin' for Life's mission is to raise funds for patient support through the following local organizations:
Marian Cancer Care: Cruzin' for Life provides funding for a cancer patient Outreach Fund. This is a discretionary fund which covers needs that insurance does not, such as transportation & housing while in treatment, mortgage payments, car payments, utility bills, child care, etc. In 2017, Cruzin' for Life was able to present a check to Marian Cancer Care Center for $150,000, bringing total donations to Marian Cancer Care since 2015 to $430,000!
Make-A-Wish Tri-Counties: This organization grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. The Tri-Counties chapter, which serves Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties began in 1985. They grant 65-80 wishes annually with a team of 100+ Volunteer Wish Granters. In 2018, Cruzin' for Life was able to present a check to Marian Cancer Care Center for $120,000, bringing total donations to Marian Cancer Care since 2006 to $1,226,300!
Each year our amazing community comes together for the Annual Cruzin' for Life event. A big thanks to extraordinary contributions from local businesses and individuals!
