Last summer the world was closed, but the waters were open. The More Kids on Sailboats crew took the opportunity to make a difference – MKOS presents the new short film – WIN(D) OVER CANCER.
“You don’t want to compare something you love to something you hate. You learn on a boat that goals change, unexpected things happen and you need to have a change of plans. Same thing with cancer.”
Follow this crew of kids as they compete in an offshore sailboat race to raise awareness & money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. A race against all adults, professionals, and mother nature herself.
