Climb Against the Odds

Experience Optional. Inspiration Guaranteed.

Welcome to Climb Against the Odds, the Breast Cancer Fund's annual mountaineering expedition for breast cancer prevention. Each year a team of women and men from across the country gathers to attempt to summit the 14,179-ft. Mt. Shasta in support of the Breast Cancer Fund's groundbreaking work to prevent breast cancer by eliminating our exposure to the toxic chemicals and radiation linked to the disease.

Each climber will arrive with very personal reasons to climb, yet together the team will show anything is possible with mutual support, determination and hard work.

Join an inspirational community, share in the experience of a lifetime and support our efforts to prevent breast cancer. The 2017 team is forming, apply now!

Event dates: June 17 - 23, 2017
