The Todd McGovern Legacy Grant is larger in scope and funding than a traditional Seas It grant. This will be given annually to one recipient who exemplifies Seas It co-founder, Todd McGovern’s, commitment to “seasing it” while fighting cancer and to inspiring other cancer fighters to persevere and live a little each day.
The recipient of the 2013 Legacy Grant completed a one-man marathon in St. John’s, Newfoundland, inspired by Canadian athlete/cancer activist, Terry Fox’s 3107-mile “Marathon of Hope.” The recipient’s run was his final step in completing a compelling and personal screenplay aimed at curing cancer through education, fundraising, and hope.
The Todd McGovern Legacy Grant application process
1. Fill out the Todd McGovern Legacy Grant application and submit two letters of recommendation. Recipients of the goods, services and funds offered by Seas It will be selected on a first come, first serve basis without discrimination on the basis of gender, race, religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation.
3. Once the application is reviewed by Seas It, a Seas It representative will contact you to discuss your application and candidacy for the Legacy Grant. We will notify you of your grant status within one month of your completed application. The Legacy Grant activity must be completed within the calendar year, with funding to be determined by Seas It.
4. Applications will be accepted throughout the calendar year. If the grant has already been awarded for a given year, applicants can apply for a Seas It Patient/Caregiver Grant, and apply again for the Legacy Grant in future years.
