Our Sky High Adventures Program gives pediatric cancer patients and families a once-in-a-lifetime experience exploring the outdoors.
Sky High Adventures takes pediatric cancer patients and survivors on a trip of a lifetime! Want to explore the great outdoors, attend an NBA game or have a girls day out? We can help! Over the past 10 years, Sky High Adventures has hosted more than 80 families across the United States and we want your family to join us!
The Spitzer family donates and sponsors a variety of our events but one of those most special things they do is host patient families at their ranch. Brodey, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital patient, and his dad flew straight from his check up at the hospital to the ranch with a clean bill of health! While at The CJ4, Spitzer’s Ranch they were given a helicopter tour of the property, attended an impromptu performance by Robert Earl Keen, and Brodey shot a ten point white tail deer. What a weekend!
Barrilleaux donated a hunt in which a donor would bid to offer a pediatric cancer patient a hunting trip of a lifetime. It was donated at Sky High’s and Crestwood Equity Partner’s Inaugural Boot & Shoot Banquet and raised $45,000 to benefit our mission but most importantly provide a weekend getaway for a special kid. Invited pediatric cancer patient, Ethan, went home with a black buck, whitetail and a fallow deer. Cancer is a cause very near to donor, Glenn Barrilleaux’s heart and as underwent treatment himself in 2016. He and Ethan bonded over their shared diagnosis of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Overall it was a great weekend!
Tie for Sky High
Part of our mission at Sky High is to provide comfort for children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Each year, hundreds of children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Ronald McDonald House Memphis and Texas Children’s Cancer Center receive a warm, fuzzy blanket that was hand-tied by volunteers just like you! If your group is interested in hosting a Tie for Sky High event, please contact Kim@skyhighforkids.org
