BENEFITING: CANCERCLIMBER ASSOCIATION

ORGANIZER: CANCERCLIMBER ASSOCIATION

EVENT DATE: Jul 14, 2014

Ryan Evans

THE STORY:

This trip is a very special Kilimanjaro adventure for me.  Having lost two grandparents to cancer in college, I was inspired to make a difference and bring awareness to the devastating disease.  I started a fundraising campaign climbing 14,000 ft. plus mountains in Colorado (14 ers), and that is how I met Sean over 11 years ago.  Since then, we have been climbing partners, working together to make a difference in this world.

I met my wife over 11 years ago, and on our first date, we talked about climbing Kilimanjaro together with Sean.  We have always said that we wouldn’t climb Kilimanjaro with anyone other than Sean.  It is now time to make that dream a reality!  I will be climbing alongside my wife and my mom on this trip, two people that mean a great deal to me. 

I mixed my training up this year, and have focused on intense yoga sessions backed up by running and climbing 14 ers.  The yoga has really made a difference in my overall flexibility and strength, and the running and climbing has increased my stamina.  Overall I feel I am ready for the climb, and with a month left before we depart, I should only get better.

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 info@cancerclimber.org

Thank you for your support!!
