The mission of the Sarah Parvin Foundation is to make a difference in the lives of cancer patients and their families. Sarah’s spirit lives on through events that are mostly created by and for children. We strive to empower children of all ages to use their innate strength and courage to make their own unique impact on their lives, the lives of others, and their community. It is our passion to provide these families with support and encouragement throughout their journey.
Our family message, that we strive to live by and try to remember during all of our events is that Sarah lived what life she had with incredible gusto. Her life lost was a loss for all of us. For some unknown reason, Sarah knew life was precious and lived her life that way. If she were here today, she would give these words of wisdom:
As a foundation we strive to help others appreciate the small things and think like a child and allow the idea of just making things happen become real. We strive to allow people to be able to think, feel, and live a little bit more stress-free. We want everyone to be able to harness the energy of children and be able to just get out in the world, look at it as something new and wonderful, and make things happen for themselves, their family, friends, or even their community.
Additionally, our two events are sport and game-oriented, and do not discriminate anyone. Because of this, we created our equality statement that explains that we don’t define what empowering children means. We believe that it is not defined by age, race, sex, or demographic, but it is something that comes within each and every child differently. We will do everything within our power and means to help anyone who comes to us who needs or wants to get involved to help and formulate an event to raise money for our common cause to try to end Ovarian Cancer.
