Having Fun at the Crag

Having Fun at the Crag

Registration fees cover the cost of the day-of fun (not tax deductible)…we ask your commitment to raise $250 or more in donations to help fund scientific research grants aimed at eliminating ovarian cancer (tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law).  Don’t you worry!  We provide you everything you need for success and make it easy peazy to meet and surpass your goal.  We even make it FUN. Ovarian cancer is often called the “silent killer” because the early symptoms are subtle and difficult to diagnose. If caught early enough, many women survive, but without an early detection test and awareness of the symptoms, another 15,000 women will die from this disease this year.  One in 72 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in their lifetime.  Which means the odds are that someone in your life will be affected by this disease. You can help change this story from tragedy to hope by participating in Climb4Life DC. The funds you raise will help HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation make grants to Johns Hopkins University researchers and the dream team at Stand Up To Cancer that HERA is collaboratively funding to find a cure and more effective diagnosis of ovarian cancer.  It will also help us raise awareness of the sometimes elusive . You are the heart of the event. We need you to help eliminate ovarian cancer!
