HERA Climb4Life DC

“The skills women learn in climbing – problem solving, risk taking and confidence in their decision making – will enable them to climb all the mountains in their lives,” -Sean Patrick, founder of Climb4Life

HERA Women's Cancer Foundation hosts this annual two-day climbing event to raise funds and awareness for ovarian cancer. It's a great opportunity to give back and spend the day with like minded climbers. There will be guides setting up all the ropes, and even doing the belaying, plus they can rent you whatever gear your need, so all you have to do is give to a great cause, show up, and get your climb on.

This year Going Vertical will be forming our own team. We have several members with family members who have battled ovarian and other reproductive cancers and so a special connection to this event.

You have to register through HERA. Here is the link to our team's page:

Please join us: register under the teamname Going Vertical Climbing Club and start making a difference today.

    Okay, I know I freaked out and bailed last night, but I'd still like to come on Saturday. I'm all paid up. I just need to mentally prepare. I think I'll be able to make our team proud...Know I said I was out, but count me back in!

    When do we find out whether we'll be climbing Maryland or Great Falls? Will we get email notification?

      Last year they sent out an email fairly late in the game. I strongly suspect we will be at Carderock on Saturday, but if I get advanced word I'll pass it along.
