The annual Above + Beyond Celebrate! Luncheon will be held on Tuesday, November 16, at the Downtown Des Moines Hilton Hotel, from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. This annual event serves as a key funder for the organization’s Optimal Living Programs.
The tradition that is carried out at each of these annual luncheons is to honor people, foundations, organizations, and corporations which have done extraordinary things in the world of cancer. We will also provide an update on all of the activities associated with Above + Beyond Cancer and we will officially announce Above + Beyond Cancer’s next Transformational Journey.
The Celebrate! Luncheon gives everyone a chance to gather together to celebrate the amazing and positive impact Above + Beyond Cancer is making in the cancer community.
One of the ways our organization makes the biggest impact on cancer survivors and caregivers is through our Optimal Living Program, which is supported through the Celebrate! Luncheon. More than six years ago, Above + Beyond Cancer established our Optimal Living Program, which is a set of weekly, evidence-based MIND | BODY | SPIRIT fitness and wellness programs for cancer survivors and caregivers. Initially, there was one program called Total Training, a 12-week program involving cardio work, weight training, Yoga and Meditation, it was designed to help bring cancer survivors back to their full strength (or maybe make them even stronger) after or during their treatment period.
The number of weekly MIND | BODY | SPIRIT programs has continued to grow, adding the Cancer Education Series, Indoor Cycling with Dr. Deming, Meditation, Yoga, Cooking + Nutrition, Bike Club, Book Club, Urban Poling, Tai Chi, Aqua sessions, and Hike/Yoga.
All of the Optimal Living Programs are now available in a mix of in-person and media delivered options. Thanks to philanthropic gifts, all of these programs are available to cancer survivors free of charge.

At Above + Beyond Cancer we recognize that the pandemic is still with us and our organization believes in doing what we can to mitigate the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus. In that vein Above + Beyond Cancer asks that all in-person attendees of the luncheon be vaccinated or have a negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours of the event. Virtual attendance is available for a live-stream event.
