Let’s start fighting cancer today!

Climb to Conquer Cancer is a unique activity held by the American Cancer Society in our western states. It is a unique event that offers everyone in a community the opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer.

Climb to Conquer Cancer represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated.

Climb to Conquer Cancer is a one day event, where teams of 8 to 15 people participate in a hike through beautiful mountain scenery, and take part in the festival area. Each team of 10 or more participants has the opportunity to submit their own artwork for the back of their t-shirts, and to participate in fundraising for the event. Our festival features entertainment, food, and a special celebration of cancer survivors.

Because Climb to Conquer Cancer is a non-competitive event, anyone and everyone can participate. Teams form from businesses, clubs, families, friends, hospitals, churches, schools and service organizations. These individuals all share a common purpose - their support of the American Cancer Society’s Mission.
