Climb For Hope
Climb for Hope was organized to raise and channel funds towards targeted and promising research in the fight against breast cancer. Our mission is to find the viable treatment for breast cancer.
In six years, we've donated over $500,000 to Johns Hopkins University for a vaccine under development. Not only does the vaccine address some of the most aggressive and lethal forms of Breast Cancer, but the research is expected to derive advances for many forms of cancer as well. Our work sped up the work being done by Dr. Leisha Emens by more than 6 months, potentially saving thousands of lives. One day this vaccine could be used preventatively in high risk women.
We are most grateful for the personal commitment the expedition climbers who worked hard to not only train, but to exceed their individual fundraising goals in support of the organization's goals. We are also most appreciative of the time and efforts of Expedition Leader Chris Warner and his EarthTreks Team, in his support of our climbers' efforts to honor the struggles of the many touched by breast cancer on a daily basis.
Climb for Hope partners with EarthTreks Climbing which provided professional, personalized health and skill training. Chris Warner, one of America's premier climbers and veteran of Mt. Everest and K2 led our trip.
