Local Women Wins SELF Magazine's Women Doing Good Award

A woman from Hood River is the winner of SELF Magazine’s 5th Annual Women Doing Good Award. Out of thousands of reader-submitted entrees, Tonia Farman was chosen for her amazing organization Athletes for Cancer—which provides one-week camps in Hawaii and Oregon, where 15-to 39-year old cancer survivors learn adventure sports such as surfing and stand up paddle boarding—lifting up spirits and help build confidence.

She joined us to share the inspiration behind her organization and what winning the award means to her.   Tonia, along with two other hometown heroes and three outstanding celebs— Jessica Alba, Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Kerry Washington—will be honored with $10,000 to support her cause which will be presented at a event ceremony in New York City on September 12th.
