Mission: To provide young adults with the means to use adventure sports to assist, inspire and energize a comeback from invasive cancer treatments.
Target demographics: At AKP we believe that the best way to build confidence is to take healthy risks. The purpose of the AKP Foundation is to build the confidence of young adults who have suffered physically altering trauma due to cancer by helping them find adventure through adaptive sports. Physical trauma can take a toll on one’s spirit and finances. Through AKP, chosen applicants will acquire personal grants or attend group retreats that will help facilitate their personal comebacks in life.
Geographic areas served: United States of America
Programs: Grants for Adventure Sports and Retreats
I lost my leg after three vows with cancer. On top of this i am a civilian and got no settlement from an accident either. Most of my expenses for sport activities and competition are out of pocket for me. I have racked up a pretty hefty bill.I had to give up several sports where i could be very good because lack of funding. I only had very few and select sponsors willing to help. AKP was able to make the difference by providing me the necessary equipment to train and compete and help me make the dream come true. This is truly a great organization that helps cancer survivors. Surviving cancer three times is tough enough....AKP foundation helps smooth the road later to enjoy life.
