2016 Climb4Life Boulder

June 25, 2016

Please join us in our fight to eliminate ovarian cancer! Have fun climbing or hiking while raising awareness and funds for ovarian cancer research. These activities are non-competitive, guided, safe, and empowering.

Based out of the Boulder Rock Club, you will enjoy a light breakfast, a bouldering clinic, or a yoga class before heading out to the foothills with expert guides from Colorado Mountain School to enjoy the day at a climbing crag. Professional climbers will be on hand all day to share their expertise and support.

If climbing isn’t your thing, you can opt to take a guided hike in the gorgeous Flatirons of Boulder, CO, instead.  Our trails are world-famous!

Join us afterwards for a fun after-party with dinner, drinks, and a stacked silent auction. Top fundraisers will win awesome prizes like camping and climbing gear.  Expect swag galore!

Whether you are a beginner climber, an experienced mountaineer, a courageous cancer survivor, a person whose life has been affected by cancer, or none of the above – Climb4Life Boulder is for you. Women, men, children, and families – all abilities, all ages, and all levels – are welcome! Go mellow and hike in the wildflowers or get agro by Tyrolean traversing a raging river to reach the crag – or something in-between. The possibilities are endless!

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 75 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 Boulder.

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, collaboratively funded by HERA to find a cure and more effective diagnosis techniques for ovarian cancer. This money will also help us raise awareness of the sometimes elusive signs and symptoms of this insidious disease.

This is the 10th Annual Climb4Life in Boulder and we have a collective goal of raising $60,000.

Please register and commit to raising $250 in honor of all the women and girls in your life.

Please call 303-501-0988 or email julie@herafoundation.beta.mystagedsite.com to contact Julie P. Hauser, National Events and Development Coordinator, with any questions about registration or the event.
