PURPOSE & HISTORY OF THE EVENT: This is our 2nd year putting on the Chicago SUP YACS Classic, which is a chance for everyone in the Chicagoland area to come down to Montrose Beach and STAND UP for Young Adult Cancer Survivors (YACS) through SUP races, relays and family-friendly beach activities. Co-founding organization, True North Treks in a nonprofit that provides free, week-long backpacking and canoeing treks in nature for young adults with cancer (ages 18-39) to help them "get back on track" after cancer treatment. Co-founding organization Surfrider Foundation-Chicago is a non-profit dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of our lakes and beaches for all people, through conservation, activism, research, and education. Together, and with the support of Kayak Chicago, the Robert H.
