“Between Two Harbors” Needs Your Help
Back in August, the non-profit organization, We Are Ocean, held its first camp in Southern California. The charity, benefitting cancer patients and survivors, took 21 participants on a five-day trip from Newport Beach, Calif. to Catalina Island, where the group was immersed in the ocean and watersports, and followed by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Richard Yelland, who captured the experience on film for his upcoming documentary, “Between Two Harbors.”
We Are Ocean participants—many of whom were fearful of the ocean or water— were taken outside of their comfort zones to try snorkeling, standup paddling, sailing, surfing, and kayaking. We Are Ocean founder Jack Marshall-Shimko—a cancer survivor himself—started the charity not only to introduce the healing effects of the ocean to cancer patients and survivors, but to also spread awareness of the importance of living a healthy and active lifestyle while fighting cancer and beyond. Yelland’s “Between Two Harbors” highlights the life-changing effects We Are Ocean’s programs have on cancer patients and survivors, but needs your help fundraising.
With funding, “Between Two Harbors” will be made into a short documentary, as well as a 30-minute TV special that will be distributed via national and global broadcast networks, film festivals, and select digital channels. Beyond funding and completing the film, the goal of “Between Two Harbors” and We Are Ocean is to help improve the lives of those touched by cancer and shed light on the healing powers of the ocean.
