Community Events

One Summit hosts year-round events in each of its markets (San Diego, Boston and New York City) to build a safe space for children and families to come together, have fun and be part of a supportive, caring community. Some of our signature community engagement events include:

Harvard Hockey Ice Skating

Each year the Harvard Men’s Hockey Team spends a day teaching One Summit’s little warriors how to ice skate. Throughout the season, patients, siblings and their families also have the opportunity to attend games together and cheer on the team!

Boston Marathon Poster-Making Party

Through its partnership with the John Hancock Nonprofit Marathon Program, over the past few years One Summit has been fortunate to receive charity bibs for the Boston Marathon. As part of the experience, each of One Summit’s Navy SEAL runners is matched with a previous Climb for Courage little warrior to inspire their training and fundraising efforts. The night before the race, One Summit hosts a Poster-Making Party, where families connect with each other, design inspiring posters and fuel their SEAL for success!

Sports Games and Other Experiences

As a result of the passion and hard work of our Navy SEAL mentors and other supporters, One Summit families also have the opportunity to attend experiences such as New England sports games and military base tours, among others, throughout the year.
