"We think kids should be going sailing, not going through cancer"
NauticEd's support of childhood brain cancer research and aiding affected families is personal and dear to our hearts. As sailors, it is hard to imagine our freedom being constrained in such a manner, our kids need to be on the water enjoying life. Now in 2021, with new technology, we have an incredible opportunity to help our children overcome this life-threatening disease and give back to them the life opportunities they deserve.
The NauticEd team is leading the way by dedicating 100% of proceeds from our Youth Sailing program and encouraging our followers to support and fund groundbreaking new trial therapies in childhood brain cancer research that promise to save many lives.

There's Hope Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford
In January 2021, Stanford University – Lucille Packard Children's Hospital in Palo Alto, California began a Phase 1 trial with immunotherapy using CAR T cells, and drum roll…it's working! With each infusion of CAR T cells, the tumor decreases in size by 10-30%. As this program proves as successful as it is currently appearing to be, then it is possible that all of us, working together, can save every child's life who contracts this terrible disease.
Lucile Packard Children's Hospital needs funds to help more children be able to go through this immunotherapy program. Currently, the hospital is constrained by funding for additional staff to help more children go through this program, lab costs for manufacturing CAR T cells, and continued research into making the immunotherapy program more effective.
NauticEd Donates 100% of Youth Sailing Proceeds
All proceeds from NauticEd Youth Sailing initiatives will be donated to the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford and as part of the fight against childhood brain cancer. These funds will support other children affected by DIPG, as well as assist in expanding the funding for advanced and effective Immunotherapy Treatments to save more lives.
Since 2008, NauticEd has been on a mission to foster safer, more competent sailors that includes multiple Youth programs. As the future generation of sailors emerges, NauticEd is honored and excited to announce the expansion of NauticEd Youth initiatives while giving back to our community.
Donations are through the Arms Wide Open Foundation, go directly to the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford and are tax deductible.
A nationally ranked women's and children's hospital, Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford is one of the few hospitals in the nation exclusively dedicated to pediatric and obstetric care. Thanks to their academic affiliation with Stanford Medicine and Stanford University, the hospital has access to some of the greatest, most innovative minds in medicine, science, and research working to develop groundbreaking advances and new discoveries in the fight against childhood cancer.
Not only does the organization provide support to families during what is likely the most difficult times of their lives, the donations focus on funding advanced and less toxic therapies for children with cancer to ensure a better quality of life as they battle the disease.
Through existing efforts with others, we have gained promises for matching funds up to $100,000. This means your contribution will double when you donate. Donate $200 and it turns to $400, donate $1,000 and it turns to $2,000.
