This 2020 Annual Report illustrates how, even during one of the most difficult years ever, Above + Beyond Cancer delivered on our mission of elevating the lives of those touched by cancer, to create a healthier world.
In the year filled with social gathering restrictions as a result of the pandemic, we converted a good measure of offerings to virtual audiences using Facebook Live and our YouTube channel. This gave us the opportunity to reach hundreds each week. We continued offering urban pole walking, hiking/stretching, and snowshoeing outside in a safe manner by using masks and social distancing techniques. In the fall, we even pulled-off our Elevate Festival in Water Works Park, with 246 registered participants all sporting their facemasks and remaining socially distanced.
With the backdrop of one of the most challenging financial years in our recent history, donors to Above + Beyond Cancer came through in impressive ways. Nearly all donors continued their philanthropic commitment and a good share of donors even increased their support. This impressive group of individuals, corporations, foundations and grant providers are all listed in the back of this report.
