New Years Resolution – Climb a Mountain, Save a Life
I joke every year when I show up at exercise class after January 1, “Well, the New Years resolution crowd is here with me.” We have inevitably all disappeared by the first of February. As I was enjoying the running joke this year, I
thought, “What if all of us aimed at an actual achievement, as opposed to the goal of just going to the gym?” Wouldn’t that make the likelihood of sticking with it a little higher?
I started talking to my friends about participating with me in this summer’s Climb to Fight Breast Cancer, benefitting Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. If we all have the goal together, we’ll make a strong and committed team, we can hike together all Spring and motivate one another to stay at the gym past Groundhog Day!
We’ll make new friends together and support survivors and individuals that sign up for a peak on their own.
The best part about a Climb to Fight Breast Cancer experience is that with every step we take in the mountains, lives are saved, research is continued, and cutting edge projects
are moving forward. Our footsteps fund Center scientists as they apply their expertise in Immunotherapy to benefit breast cancer patients through T-cell therapy, and as they continue development of the breast cancer vaccine.
