The Celebrate Life Story

Simple Gestures. No Strings.  Simply, we offer assistance and enhance the lives of our family, friends, and neighbors affected by cancer in Sandpoint and the surrounding communities.

Celebrate life Fun Run/Walk began in 2004, the vision of a courageous and beautiful young woman, Jenny Meyer, who was diagnosed at age 26 with an aggressive form of breast cancer.
