Team Tennis to Smash Cancer
Join us for the annual Team Tennis to Smash Cancer tennis tournament. There will be great competition on the courts, but the only score that counts is how much funds are raised to fight cancer. Help us put cancer in no man's land! Format: Round Robin Team Tennis vs 5 other teams.

Crush Cancer and Your Trainer
Join us for a day when fitness trainers from across the Upper Valley come together to be physically challenged in the gym, all in the name of fighting cancer. Participants sweat it out to crush cancer in a group fitness class. Then, the tables are turned! Participants will have the opportunity to put their trainer through a workout of their choice or simply sponsor him or her as they go through a marathon of workouts.
