HERA 2018 Colorado_CWeidner-14.jpg


Several events take place throughout the year and the country. Our goal is to raise funds support research for ovarian cancer to increase early detection, find improved treatments, and work toward a cure. HERA’s events also provide an excellent forum for empowering women and raising awareness of the signs, symptoms, and impacts of ovarian cancer.

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.

Whether you’re a beginner climber or hiker, an experienced mountaineer, a courageous cancer survivor, a person who knows someone affected by cancer, or just looking for an incredibly fun event – Climb4Life is for you! Each event is unique and reflective of the local communities that host them, providing climbing, hiking, yoga, live music, and much more – in beautiful settings with professional athletes and guides and those who support ovarian cancer research.


Rock climbing encompasses problem solving, taking calculated risks and physical and mental challenges, which ovarian cancer patients also face on a daily basis.

HERA’s Climb4Life events are a cornerstone in helping accomplish our mission to eliminate ovarian cancer by promoting Health, Empowerment, Research, and Awareness.  Climb4Life provides an excellent forum for empowering women and supporting awareness of the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer.


"The skills learned in climbing - problem solving, risk taking, & confidence in their decision making – will enable them to climb all the mountains in their lives"
                               -Sean Patrick, Founder
