About Conquer The Day – the Stefan Pierson Foundation: This non-profit was started in memory of Stefan Pierson, who at age 22 lost his battle with bone cancer. Stefan was an avid outdoor enthusiast, captain of the SBHS Soccer and Alpine Ski teams his senior year, who would not let his cancer prevent him from living life to the fullest. His courage, inspiration, positivity to others, and enthusiasm were what drove the establishment of a non-profit organization which would provide support to other Vermont young adults, ages 18 to 25, who are battling cancer. The foundation provides support such as adaptive equipment to continue favorite activities, opportunities to learn a new skill or develop an existing hobby, or trips / wishes to ease the impact of their cancer treatments. For more information or to donate to the Foundation, please see: https://conquertheday.org/.
