My motivation for beginning this fundraiser is my Aunt Tracy. When she was first diagnosed with cancer, her prognosis was 3 months, but because of research, she was with us for 3 more years. In her final days, I realized how terrible this disease is and how many people it affects. I was too young to do anything then but now, I can do something. Help me bring awareness to how cancer research saves lives and raise funds to support that research.
For every rock climbing competition I participate in through August 8, 2020, I will donate $20 to the V Foundation. My hope is that you will match my donation, beat it or join the Climb2CrushCancer team and start a page of your own to support the V Foundation for Cancer Research, an organization whose mission is to declare Victory Over Cancer®. No matter the amount, every donation matters. Thank you for participating!
