Come join  Above + Beyond Cancer for an annual, uplifting event featuring:

A short film spotlighting their transformational journey to Tibet, artwork display from the Art as Therapy class for Survivors, reflections developed from a unique collaboration between the Drake Community Press and a announcement of their next transformational journeys.

The evening starts with appetizers and drinks in the second floor Gallery of the Olmsted Center, with the program and film taking place in Parents Hall.

Founded in 2011 by Des Moines, Iowa Oncologist Dr. Richard Deming, their team takes cancer survivors on incredible adventures. Above + Beyond Cancer journeys have led participants to places like Mount Everest Base Camp and the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, but their work isn’t about getting to the tops of mountains. Through their transformational journeys, their participants inspire the public by devoting themselves to a life of advocacy and leading an example for healthy living and cancer prevention in their communities.
