I guess you can say I live for the moment and view life as too short not to go for your dreams all while having fun doing it. I grew up hiking and camping in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota, so my love for the outdoors flourished at a young age. I have been inspired to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro for over 10 years now. It all began when I watched an IMAX movie. I was instantly intrigued by this majestic mountain. Shortly there after I met the love of my life and on our first date we quickly found we had the same interest in climbing Kilimanjaro. It is a dream come true not only sharing this with my husband but also climbing for a great cause. I have lost two grandparents to cancer and have friends who are survivors. I will be climbing for them and with the support of my amazing family and friends. I could almost pee my pants I am that excited to be going on this adventure.
Each year we take a team to Africa and climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in honor of all the lives touched by cancer. Honor a loved one who has fought cancer by sponsoring a CancerClimber today! Please add the names of your loved ones in the “comment section” as they will be climbing with us on Jul 19th all 19, 340ft to the summit! Their names will be on our Team CancerClimber flag that will remain at the summit to commemorate their struggle.
100% of the funds raised by each climber go towards:
- developing a mobile camp for young adults with cancer
- personal visits to patients by survivors to inspire hope
- adventure grants
- inspiring all those touched by cancer to focus on LIVING
The mobile camp for young adults will travel to children’s hospitals around the country providing them with the experience of a “personal expedition” while instilling confidence through a safe environment. Counseling and support to the children and their families will also be provided.
Our Mission is to help those touched by cancer by focusing on living an active, healthy lifestyle. To learn more about CancerClimber and how to get involved, please visit http://www.cancerclimber.org/ or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
