Have you ever dreamed you’d ascend a mountain?  Or have you thought about seeing the circle-of-life on an African safari?  Have you wished to experience the magical culture of a far away region?  Or have you contemplated a world and future free of breast cancer? You can experience or impact all of these this summer.

As the Climb to Fight Breast Cancer® enters its 14th year, we reflect on the impact this event has made on breast cancer research advances and awareness.

-Over 625 climbers have taken on this adventure.

-Over 5.1 million dollars has been raised for life-saving research.

-Over 15,000 donors have contributed.

-Three of the world’s “seven summits” have been climbed as a part of the Climb to Fight Breast Cancer®, with last June being our first summit of Denali, the tallest peak in North America.

-This July will be our first expedition on Mt. Olympus, in Olympic National Park.

-In 2010, climbers raised over $600,000 to fund a cure.

This summer, outdoor enthusiasts will join together to ascend some of the world’s most breathtaking mountains in honor or memory of loved ones who have battled breast cancer. If you’ve never climbed to the top of a mountain, you will be introduced to a part of the world unlike any other. The Climb to Fight Breast Cancer® allows you to touch the top of states, countries and continents while raising vital funds and awareness toward finding a cure.
