One Summit's mission is to build resilience and facilitate growth in pediatric cancer patients and their siblings through experiential learning, mentorship, community engagement and storytelling with US Navy SEALs.
At the end of 2019, Love Your Melon gifted $20,000 to One Summit to expand their Climb for Courage program in Virginia Beach.
This year, Love Your Melon’s gift of $10,000 will support the Climb for Courage Program in all four major market areas. At Climb for Courage, pediatric cancer patients and their siblings are matched 1:1 with a U.S. Navy SEAL and guided through a series of rock-climbing challenges and a learning curriculum based on teamwork, goal setting, and overcoming adversity. Their experience, coupled with the long-lasting relationship formed with their Navy SEAL mentor, provides each child with the additional source of strength and encouragement they need in their battle against cancer. Climb for Courage is held annually in Boston, New York City, San Diego, and Virginia Beach.
