FC Pirates

Welcome to our Team Page! We are participating in Pink Heavenly on Saturday, March 23, 2019 to support those in our community with all forms of cancer and we need your support!

My name is Connor Henderson, I was born and raised in South Lake Tahoe. I moved away to Monterey when I was 18 to go to school at CSU Monterey Bay. There I ran cross country for the schools team and earned a degree in Kinesiology. On October 2nd, 2018, I was diagnosed with Burkitt's Lymphoma. After finding out, I decided to move back to Tahoe to do my treatment. I am fortunate to only have to go through 6 rounds of chemo therapy. I have currently finished 5 rounds of chemo, with only 1 left to go. The Barton Foundation has helped me tremendously, and I am very pleased to help give back. They have provided me the opportunity to workout at the Center for Orthopedics and Wellness. If you know me at all, then you know I am a very active person. This opportunity has helped me build my strength and endurance back up throughout my treatment. Without their generosity, I not only would be extremely weak, I probably would have lost my mind. I have been lucky to still be able to enjoy the activities I love; mountain biking, skiing, and just being outdoors.   

Join us and team up with Barton Foundation to give cancer the boot. Proceeds benefit community members living with cancer by funding Barton Health’s Cancer Wellness Services, providing patients with the opportunity to receive exercise and nutrition coaching, emotional support, acupuncture, outdoor adventures and more. These unique services can dramatically impact a patient's quality of life and are not typically covered by insurance.

Join our team! You don't have to be a skier to join the team, there are many ways to participate with us. A costume contest, entertainment and fun will take place at Pink Heavenly Headquarters, located at Heavenly’s California Base Lodge.

Thanks for your support!
