Climb Against the Odds - the Breast Cancer Fund's annual mountaineering expedition


by Press Release

Welcome to Climb Against the Odds, the Breast Cancer Fund's annual mountaineering expedition for breast cancer prevention.

Each year an amazing team of women and men from across the country gathers to attempt to summit the 14,179-ft. Mt. Shasta in support of the Breast Cancer Fund's groundbreaking work to prevent breast cancer by eliminating our exposure to the toxic chemicals and radiation linked to the disease.

Each climber will arrive with very personal reasons to climb, yet together the team will show anything is possible with mutual support, determination and hard work.

Join an inspirational community, share in the experience of a lifetime and support our efforts to prevent breast cancer. The 2014 team is forming, apply now!

Questions? Contact Sheila Brown at sbrown@breastcancerfund.org or (415) 321-2904.

 

Each year the Climb Against the Odds team proves that—with teamwork and perseverance—anything is possible if taken one step at a time.

It's an apt metaphor for the Breast Cancer Fund's work to prevent a disease that now affects one in eight American women—a rate that virtually guarantees that we all know someone with breast cancer.

Our tradition of climbing mountains began in 1995 and has raised critical awareness and funds in support of our prevention mission.

The efforts of the Climb Against the Odds team will support the Breast Cancer Fund’s groundbreaking work to prevent breast cancer by eliminating our exposure to the toxic chemicals and radiation linked to the disease.

The Breast Cancer Fund is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. For more information about where the money you raise goes, see our financial information.
