In the vast expanse of life’s adventures, some stories stand out for their spirit of exploration and unconventional charm. One such tale is that of Cade Keller, a young man whose zest for life knew no bounds. In memory of Cade, Elevate Phoenix has joined hands with K2 Adventures Foundation to embark on a series of escapades aptly named “Cade’s Escapades,” where nature, fitness, and camaraderie intertwine to create lasting memories.

Cade Keller

Cade Keller was more than a name; he was an embodiment of adventure and creativity. With a penchant for the unconventional, Cade immersed himself in various pursuits, from skateboarding to metallurgy, from gardening to rock climbing. His love for the outdoors was matched only by his magnetic personality and his affection for his bulldog companion, Pearl. In March of 2022, Cade left this world prematurely at the age of 16, leaving behind a legacy of audacious escapades and cherished memories.
