HERA events are a fun place to learn new skills and challenge yourself.
Turn your passion into action to find a cure for ovarian cancer by joining us in 2015 at a HERA event. Women, men, children and families – all abilities, all ages, all levels- are welcome!
The original Climb4LifeSM event was conceived by HERA Founder Sean Patrick, while she was recovering from her seventh ovarian cancer surgery. She felt a rock-climbing event would put a different face on ovarian cancer and get people involved in the cause. Realizing Climb4LifeSM would raise awareness in women who are healthy and active, Patrick saw greater potential: the event would enable women to be introduced to the sport of climbing, and it’s physical and mental benefits.
Since that first Climb for LifeSM HERA events have evolved to include climbing, running, hiking, biking, as well as other activities. The common element at HERA events is to empower, educate, and make audiences aware of the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer.
In addition to sporting events, many individuals volunteer to organize and host community events that benefit the HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation. Events range from cross country motorcycle rides like the MOCA Fundraiser to cocktail parties or birthday celebrations honoring important women that have touched our lives.
