WHAT IS SURFEBRUARY?
SurFebruary is a fun annual event in February, where participants raise money for cancer research by catching a wave or getting in the water every day – rain, hail or shine.
This philanthropic, grassroots event is now in its sixth year and is building serious momentum, more than doubling in size and donations year-on-year.
Over the past 5 years we have grown at a rapid pace. A total of 2300 participants have raised over $1.1million for innovative cancer research and treatment.
HOW DID IT START?
After co-founder Jenna-Lea Clark survived a life-changing cancer diagnosis at the age of 28, she and husband Arron teamed up with their mates Mike Durante and Krista Huebner.
The four share a passion for giving back and a deep love for the transformative benefits of the ocean. In 2018, they decided to combine the two and SurFebruary was born!
On January 1st 2018, the idea that sparked SurFebruary was born, co-founded by Jenna and Ronny Clark, together with Krista and Mike Durante, on a mission to do good and feel good.
These beachside locals share a passion for the ocean and know firsthand the transformative and restorative benefits of getting in the water every day. From funding ground-breaking research, to sparking personal change for individuals in our community, change is at the heart of what drives them.
