The Breast Cancer Fund and Climb Against the Odds

By Clint Dickson on Mar 05, 2008 in Stories

Climb Against the Odds marks the ninth major mountaineering expedition to support and raise awareness for the Breast Cancer Fund’s work to eliminate the environmental causes of the disease. In June, a team of 40 women and men – breast cancer survivors and supporters – will climb Mt. Shasta, 14,162-feet, in a collective effort to prevent breast cancer and a personal challenge to overcome the devastating experience of the disease.

Clint's mom, a breast cancer survivor herself, is one of the climbers this year, and will be attempting two difficult things. One, is to summit Mt. Shasta. The other is to raise $10,000 for the Breast Cancer Fund in the form of donations. Gliffy, Inc. was proud to donate to the Breast Cancer Fund this year in support of her climb.
