Win(d) Over Cancer

Last summer the world was closed, but our waters were open.

This crew took the opportunity to make a difference – More Kids On Sailboats, a 501(c)(3) organization is proud to present our first short film – WIN(D) OVER CANCER

“You don’t want to compare something you love to something you hate. You learn on a boat that goals change, unexpected things happen and you need to have a change of plans. Same thing with cancer.”

Follow our crew of kids as they compete in an offshore sailboat race to raise awareness & money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

A race against all adults, professionals, and mother nature herself.

Andrew Jowett / 2021 / 9 minutes / English / United States
