Whether you’re a beginner or experienced climber, a courageous cancer survivor, a person whose life has been affected by cancer, or just someone looking for a weekend of fun – Climb4Life is for you! HERA’s signature fundraising events are the Climb4Life series, raising money for ovarian cancer research and awareness initiatives.


As a top fundraiser you will take home some really great prizes — like tents, sleeping bags, yoga mats, and more!
