Welcome to the new home of Rise Above It (RAI)!
RAI is a community of committed friends and supporters who help in the fight against Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) cancer. The strength in spirit of its founder, Colin O'Donoghue, guides RAI's community in its efforts. As a friend, teacher and coach, Colin deeply enriched the lives of others. After his cancer diagnosis, he demonstrated a true passion for supporting young adults affected by cancer. His sincerity in helping those with cancer, and the transfer of his attitude together resulted in real opportunities for others. The RAI community continues this practice with the same enthusiasm and vigor Colin brought to every aspect of his life. Colin always believed that enjoying life and embracing a positive attitude were essential components of happiness. Using this principle as inspiration, RAI devises fun and positive events, and mobilizes great people with the goal of raising money to accomplish its primary objective: to provide meaningful support to young cancer patients.
