HERA 2018 Colorado_CWeidner-6_edited.jpg


An annual rock climbing event with an after-party! Not only is it a fundraiser, it's an inspirational event encouraging participants to go beyond their comfort zone, challenge their mental and physical capabilities, and push past the limitations we all place on ourselves. Expect climbing clinics, yoga, live music, food, drinks, silent and live auctions! Participate in as many or as few of the events as you like. All ticket holders will receive a custom goodie bag filled with delicious and great gifts from some of our sponsors. Proceeds fund grants that we award to scientists with “outside the box” ideas investigating new directions in basic research, treatment, early detection, and prevention of ovarian cancer.

GALA 2023

climb 2023


Our signature fundraising event Climb4Life began in 2002 alongside HERA

Ovarian Cancer Foundation by founder Sean Patrick while recovering from

her 7th ovarian cancer surgery. Being an avid rock climber, she felt an event

centered on rock climbing would present ovarian cancer in a different light and

get more people involved in the cause.

Climb4Life has since grown into a series and is now a multi-city program supported by

numerous partners and attracting hundreds of participants in Washington, D.C., Salt Lake City, and Boulder, Colorado.

Funds raised through these events provide scientific research grants, as well as education and awareness initiatives.
