Think Pink with some Mountain Bling
We have many reasons to climb mountains – and even more reasons to climb a mountain for breast cancer research and awareness. During breast cancer awareness month, we reflect on the people that form our mountain footsteps.
Surviving is serious business, so we have a flair of fun on the peaks. We are awed by the creative ways climbers honor their loved ones and celebrate their summits.
Pictures speak thousands of words. Here are just a few that make us smile.
2011 marked our first official “Survivor Summit.” We would argue that every mountain is a Survivor Summit. Every mountain celebrates survivors, caregivers, doctors, researchers and the individuals that create new treatments and medications. Every mountain encourages outdoor enthusiasts to pursue an athletic adventure for a cause.
Survivors scaled Mts. Hood, Baker, Kilimanjaro and Rainier this season, and perhaps many more, as some survivors choose to keep their survivorship to themselves.
As the Climb to Fight Breast Cancer enters its 15th year, we are saluting all who have climbed, survived, cared, and donated.
Think Pink! Join us in 2012!
