Brendan Borek loved to surf. He spent many hours on the beach with his friends waiting for the incoming high tides-which brought about the best surfing conditions. So it was a natural for his friends to wish him “high tides” during his struggle with cancer.
In keeping with that same shared feeling of community good will, Brendan’s Fund strives to provide “High Tides” conditions for Cape May County and Atlantic County families who have a child or young adult with cancer.
In 2015 we established the Brendan Borek Endowed Fund at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The endowed fund provides services to Atlantic and Cape May County pediatric cancer patients and their families. These “access to care” services include but are not limited to Food, Travel, Hotel and other services during the child’s illness. This endowed fund guarantees access to care to present and future generations of ill children.
2016 Brendan's Fun Summer Events
On August 1st, 2015 the final Brendan Borek Surf Memorial will take place. We want you to be here! Also on the schedule for that night is a revival of Avalon’s Legendary Party “The Beef N’ Beer.”
We are making this announcement because we realize that many of you have obligations to fulfill and arrangements to make. This will allow everyone a sufficient amount of time for planning your trip to the Jersey Shore next August. We look forward to seeing all our friends, old and new, on the 30th Street Beach, Avalon, NJ for the “25th Brendan.”
Brendan’s Fund will continue to fulfill its mission of supporting children with cancer. The encouragement we have received over the years from our loyal friends has been exceptional and deeply appreciated.
We are looking forward to sharing memories and connecting with old friends.
