our purpose

     // our purpose //     

Our goal is to leave this world in a better state than we found it.

We’ve learned over the course of our lives that if you don’t stand for something then what’s the point? Here at Till I Die we maintain a genuine appreciation for adaptive sports. We all love to be on the mountain, outdoors, and believe it’s important that anyone, of any ability, should be able to rip it up when they want and where they want. We have a passion for everything outdoor, active, and on mountain and want to share that passion with everyone.

Check our events calendar for upcoming fundraisers, volunteer opportunities, and outings. We hope to see you out there this season helping us leave this world better than we found it.

Carve for Cancer Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to the mission of shredding blood cancers through extreme sports
events and fundraising. Carve was founded by east coast shredder and blood cancer warrior, Brent P. Evans. In 2010, Brent was diagnosed with stage IV non-hodgkins lymphoma when he envisioned an epic snowboarding event to raise funds to shred cancer while being treated at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. By 2012, the first grass roots fundraiser was underway in the Pocono Mountains. Fast forward to 2016, Carve for Cancer Inc. is now a federally recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit and the organizations main event has become the Pocono’s premier free-ride snowboard/ski festival. Each year the event brings thousands to the mountain to enjoy a live music, art demos, intense competition, and a whole lot more. C4C is raising tens of thousands of dollars while spreading awareness and funding life-saving research!

Unfortunately in 2016, Brent’s cancer came back, and he ultimately passed away due to complications with the disease. This is a brutal reminder about how important Carve for Cancer’s mission really is! Today Brent's spirit lives on and our team is hard at work raising more money than ever.
