About Us


The devastating impacts cancer has on the individuals inflicted and their families are indescribable. Strap In For Life is a certified 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit providing the solace of The Rocky Mountains by partnering with World-Renowned ski resorts and action sports activity centers offering getaways individually catered to those impacted by this devastating disease.

One of our own was taken from cancer – legendary professional snowboarder and skater, Strap In For Life co-founder Dave Tuck who inspired this non-profit to come to fruition. Dave’s diligent fight against pancreatic cancer inspired his friends and family to keep his memory alive by creating an experience-based nonprofit focusing on bringing the positive force of the mountains to those who need it the most.

Strap In For Life does this by providing annual trips to deserving families and couples around the US.  Covering travel, lodging, dining, lift tickets, ski/snowboard lessons, and more. Seasonality doesn’t stop Strap In For Life from bringing people to the mountains, in the summer months partnerships with Woodward have treated families to indoor skateboarding and trampoline park in the heart of beautiful Copper Mountain, Colorado, and Boreal Mountain in Lake Tahoe California. View video recaps of those who’ve enjoyed these once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

100% of donations go towards recreating these experiences with new, deserving families each year as our board members who operate Strap In For Life are volunteers. What’s better than sharing our love for the mountains with those who deserve it most?
