Our climbers are gathering in Mt. Shasta as we speak, gearing up to climb the mountain in just two days. Excited? Check. Nervous? Check? Impressed with Shasta's beauty? Check.
In the meantime, one of our climbers, Kelly Miller was featured in the Pittsburgh Tribune:
“My aunt was diagnosed with and survived breast cancer, and that has motivated me to apply for this 14,179-foot climb,” Miller said. “She is also still involved with the Breast Cancer Fund, so hopefully, we can save our loved one and keep this tradition, Climb Against the Odds, alive. The Breast Cancer Fund is a nonprofit that works to prevent breast cancer by eliminating our exposure to toxic chemicals and radiation linked to the disease. I have learned this can be done through personal, corporate and political action.”
