Survivor’s Outdoor Experience (SOE) presents the first Pittsburgh-based “Healing Adventure” at the Chatham University Eden Hall campus June 28th – 30th, 2019. All participants attend free of charge.
Survivor’s Outdoor Experience is a 501 © (3) non-profit educational and recreational organization run solely by volunteers. Founded by 15-year brain cancer survivor, Jack Ganster, this program was developed to provide cancer survivors of all ages an opportunity to learn about the benefits of living a healthy and active lifestyle. The program provides a curriculum of informative presentations balanced with recreational activities. The goal is to assist participants in gaining strength, hope, and a sense of the future.
Ganster is a Richland Township native who now lives in Port Angeles, WA. SOE has hosted seven successful Healing Adventure Retreats in Port Angles and Ganster wanted to bring the experience to his hometown.
The Healing Adventure will bring a small group of participants together in a remarkable setting to enjoy a weekend that will be one to remember. Participants will include individuals that have been diagnosed with cancer and a companion (if they choose to be accompanied).[Read more…]
