THE STORY:

Mary Kate Wright wrote:

Hey ya all! Welcome to my fundraising page for Climb for Life. I'm aligned with a team of Philly area climbers, who are going to be climbing down in the DC area on July 11, 2015. 

I'm doing this because I think it is a great way to promote an important issue for women--early detection of ovarian cancer, and research grants through Johns Hopkins. But also because as a sport, I think climbing can promote strength in women...even strength that you did not know you had until you push yourself. 

So if you can, I encourage you to donate to the page, or, come on out and join us for a great day of climbing and a great cause! I've attached a link through Hera related to information about detection of ovarian cancer (only 20% is caught early). 

http://www.herafoundation.org/ovarian-cancer/symptoms/

This other link is just a cool article about why climbing can be a great sport for women to try; my favorite quote: "Climbing has also helped through some major struggles in my life by showing me how strong I really am...."

Thank you so much for checking out my page on team PHL-ATC!
