Register Now!

We want you to join us for an amazing day of camaraderie, climbing, hiking,

and more to eliminate ovarian cancer.

Kicking off this year’s event is a fun movie premier brought to you by Petzl at the Petzl Headquarters on Friday, September 25th at 7:00pm.  Entry into the event is complimentary with your Climb4Life registration.  More details coming *very* soon!

New this year we are offering a number of clinics in addition to a guided outdoor climbing experience.  Interested in transitioning to leading, building anchors, or self rescue?  Check out what our volunteer guides are serving up for you: 2015 Climb4Life Salt Lake City Climbing Clinics.

Whether you are a beginner climber, an experienced mountaineer, a courageous cancer survivor or a person whose life has been affected by cancer – Climb4Life Salt Lake City is for you.  Women, men, children and families – all abilities, all ages, and all levels- are welcome!  We’ll be sure to have some awesome professional climbers there to share their expertise and support as well.

If climbing isn’t your thing, you can opt  instead to take a guided hike.

Join us afterwards for a fun dance party (location TBD) with dinner, drinks, and a stacked silent auction.  Top fundraisers will win awesome prizes like camping and climbing gear.  Expect swag galore.

Registration Fees:

$50.00 climbing (through 9/9)

$65 (after 9/10)

Registration fees cover the cost of the day-of fun…we ask your commitment to raise $250 or more in donations to help fund scientific research grants aimed at eliminating ovarian cancer.  Don’t you worry!  We provide you everything you need for success and make it easy peazy to meet and surpass your goal.  We even make it FUN.

Ovarian cancer is often called the “silent killer” because the early symptoms are subtle and difficult to diagnose. If caught early enough, many women survive, but without an early detection test and awareness of the symptoms, another 15,000 women will die from this disease this year.  One in 75 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in their lifetime.  Which means the odds are that someone in your life will be affected by this disease. You can help change this story from tragedy to hope by participating in Climb4Life Salt Lake City.

The funds you raise will help HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation make grants to Johns Hopkins University researchers and the dream team at Stand Up To Cancer that HERA is collaboratively funding to find a cure and more effective diagnosis of ovarian cancer.  It will also help us raise awareness of the sometimes elusive signs and symptoms of this insidious disease.

This is the 13th Annual Climb4Life in Salt Lake City and we have a collective goal of $30,000.

Please join us in honor of all the women and girls in your life.

What happens after I register?

One note about donations – most folks will give via credit card, but a handful will give you cash or a check. These are called offline donations and you can still put them in your fundraising page so it counts toward your fundraising goal (Go to your Crowdrise fundraising page>Manage Campaign>Donation Toolkit>Offline Donation Manager).

You can mail checks (please don’t send cash) to:
