I have decided to join the Mount Adams climb to raise money and awareness for breast cancer and MS research at Johns Hopkins. Jodi's Climb for Hope's mission is to find a viable treatment for breast cancer and MS. They've donated over $750,000 to Johns Hopkins University for a vaccine under development, with the money going specifically to Dr. Leisha Emens. Not only does the vaccine address some of the most aggressive and lethal forms of breast cancer, but the research is also expected to derive advancements for many other forms of cancer in the future.
July 2016 will be my first Climb for Hope expedition and I couldn't be more thrilled to be a part of an amazing cause. Jodi's Climb for Hope is hosting its first ever all women's climb to Mount Adams in Washington, reaching 12,276 ft. in a remote wilderness, with a 6700' elevation gain. We plan to summit this mountain in honor of the many women whose lives are and were devastated by breast cancer and MS. Additionally, we are carrying a friend suffering with MS to the top of Mount Adams in a specially designed chair.
Help us bring hope to others and raise awareness for this cause!
Every little bit helps.
Thanks for reading ☺
