Our vision

In the fight against cancer, both patients and their loved ones feel a huge sense of helplessness. Cancer is everywhere. Fighting it seems pointless.

Everyone involved has firsthand experience of how dramatically their lives are affected and how destructive it can be. The POAS8 was created with the aim to empower people to convert the sense of powerlessness, caused by cancer, into one of strength. We achieve this by motivating as many people as possible to constantly challenge and expand their boundaries. The POAS8 wants to raise funds to fight cancer by cycling up the Volcano Poas 1 up to 8 times in one day. The POAS8 is founded on the absolute belief that you can attain the greatest possible satisfaction if you put your heart and soul into helping others.

In memory of those who died too young of cancer and to inspire those who are fighting it.

Our motto is "Never, ever quit!"

We refuse to accept any limitations in what we can and will achieve.

What is our goal? The POAS8 will always appeal to those who share our belief to push their limits. Whether canvassing for sponsors, cycling the Volcano Poas, not spending any money, or creating a medical program that will revolutionise health care, they are willing to go where no one has gone before. Each victory, however unrealistic it seemed at first, motivates us to continue to push the limits and set higher targets. We do this not for ourselves, but for those who truly need it.

After all, only a fool blows against the wind, but together we can change its course.

Our dream is for cancer to evolve from a deadly disease into a chronic illness. We want to support cancer patients so that each one has the opportunity to lead a happy and healthy life in harmony with cancer. Besides, everybody can experience an ultimate feeling of happiness, by giving the best you can for others. It is the drive that realises our dreams.

We have a mission:

To facilitate and inspire people to lead Happy and Healthy lives in Harmony with cancer.
