Our team is made up of climbers, hikers, bikers, scientists, teachers, engineers and techies. While that sounds like a diverse group, what we share is a conviction to eliminate cancer
Our teammate Laura, was diagnosed and successfully treated. We found out about Climb4Life in the back of Climbing Magazine. In celebration, we formed a team joined our first Climb4Life event in Salt Lake City in 2006. We raised funds and met some of the most inspiring people like Sean Patrick and Samantha Lockwood--both rock stars.
Nine years later, our team has grown and so has our passion.
Ovarian cancer is still the 5th leading cause of cancer deaths among women and kills more women than all the other gynecologic cancers combined. There is no reliable test for early detection and more effective treatments are needed so we can save the 1000’s of women diagnosed annually.
