Cancer touches us all. The Huck Cancer Ultimate
Frisbee Tournament was born when our good friend Eric Arons was diagnosed with cancer. When friends approached Eric about doing something "formal" in his honor, he unselfishly (and very characteristically) turned the spotlight away from himself, and suggested we set up a fundraising event that would involve something fun. These simple ideas evolved into the Huck Cancer Ultimate Tournament.

It's Not About the Bicyclist: A personal statement from Eric Arons
(this is why Eric continued to support LIVESTRONG last year and why we still do today)
It's not about the bicyclist. Or at least it shouldn't be. I realize many people felt hurt and deceived by recent issues surrounding Lance Armstrong. I understand these strong reactions. But I continue to support the LIVESTRONG Foundation because LIVESTRONG has moved way beyond its original founder. And it has been steadfast in its mission of inspiring, supporting, and empowering cancer survivors. When my wonderful friends first organized Huck Cancer four years ago, I wanted the beneficiary to be an organization that supported people with all kinds of cancers, not just
my cancer. After all, different cancers have affected each of us, in one way or another. In researching different organizations, LIVESTRONG demonstrated the most broad support with the best efficiency around. In the past few years I have met several cancer
survivors and have always been impressed with how passionately LIVESTRONG has responded.* In fact, during my own
repeat performances, I've received lots of comfort and support, encouraging me to LIVESTRONG.
* There are several interesting stories from different
survivors worth checking out. One is by Brian Rose. It is a story of sarcastic wit, so hang onto the ride. Another on NPR touches on opinions from both sides with regard to Lance, but both still support the ongoing work of LIVESTRONG.
And finally, the LIVESTRONG organization sent us a personal letter reinforcing their original goal.
