You’ve heard the lore before, but, just who is Stanley anyway?
The Stanley Award was created by HERA founder, Sean Patrick. When she started Climb4Life in 2002, she was told that people would donate to a rock climbing event when pigs flew. Thirteen years later, the Climb4Life events are still going strong by raising lots of funds to eliminate ovarian cancer through scientific research while also raising awareness about the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer.
And, Stanley, the flying pig award? He’s still going strong, too. The top fundraising team at the Climb4Life weekends get to take Stanley home, and the competition is fierce!
With our 2015 Climb4Life Series gearing up for an all-time awesome year and Climb4Life Boston just around the corner…it is time for you to start thinking about pulling together your team to strategize on how to raise the most funds and bring Stanley home.
Who’s going to be the top fundraising team at the 2015 Climb4Life Boston? So far over $5,000 has been raised by the Boston Climb4Life participants, but teams who win Stanley know that it takes over three times that amount to bring him home and keep him.
In the past people have done crazy things to raise funds, even shaving their heads! In addition to Stanley, the top fundraising team will win some fantastic prizes.
