My friend Aaron works for a foundation that is working to provide cancer care to the country of Nepal. I joined him in their first NW cancer climb back in march and had a blast sweating my butt off hiking up a mountain. If you\’d like to donate to this cause, it would be for a great cause run by great people. Here\’s a bit about the climbs:
The Northwest Cancer Climb is a recurring hiking fundraiser in the Pacific Northwest. Funds raised during the hike go toward the Binaytara Foundation’s project to establish a comprehensive cancer center in the impoverished country of Nepal. The Binaytara Foundation is an international cancer health nonprofit based in Northwest Washington.
Northwest Cancer Climb events are held at various iconic trails throughout the Northwest. The first hike took nearly 90 hikers to the top of Oyster Dome, raising over $4,000 for the cancer center. Hikes are chosen by difficulty and reward.
And here is a blurb about where the money will be going more specifically:
The Binaytara Foundation will establish a state-of-the-art public cancer center in Province 2 of Nepal. It will be the first comprehensive cancer center in the province and serve a population area of about 15 million. The center will cost approximately $7 million and be completed within 5 years.
