Climb to Fight Breast Cancer

Talk Radio 570 KVI's John Carlson has climbed the highest peaks in the Cascade range, including Mount Hood, Mount Adams, and Mount Rainier. Soon he will be climbing Mt. Baker.  It’s more than a challenge.  It’s for a cause, Climb to Fight Breast Cancer.  July 25th through July 27th, John will hike for the 10th consecutive year to support the thousands of women who were diagnosed with breast cancer last year.  John will not be climbing Mt. Baker alone.  He will be joined this year by Marina Rockinger and KOMO 4's Denise Whitaker.  This year also marks Denise's 10th anniversary climb.
 
The Climb to Fight Breast Cancer began in 1997.  Over these years, climbers have experienced the thrill of standing above the clouds while making a huge impact with raising over $7 million to fund critical research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.  Click HERE to donate and for more information. 
You can even inquire about climbing a mountain yourself, anyone can climb a mountain with Fred Hutch.  Every donation helps.  And it's tax deductible.
