“In Life We Are All Climbers”
Through the worldwide climbing community we aim to increase awareness and raise funds for research in the continued fight against a disease that affects so many.
Climbers Against Cancer is run purely by volunteers and none of the money raised is used for administration, travel or any other expenses.
Funds are raised through the sale of the brightly coloured CAC t-shirts, warm and comfy hoodies, cool underwear and climbing holds via the website. Many fundraising events have taken place around the world with supporters selling the charity garments, climbing the height of famous mountains at their local walls/gyms, running marathons and many other interesting initiatives.
Climbers Against Cancer is a truly global campaign with t-shirts etc being sold across all five continents and climbers, their friends and families are wearing the CAC logo with pride on rock faces, in climbing centres and in every day life. The charity is very inclusive and given it’s international nature we decided from the very beginning that the donations should reflect this and contributions to cancer research would in time take place in every country.
Using International climbing events as the foundation for many of the donations means we can gain more publicity and promotion for the work we are all doing through the worldwide live TV streaming, social media, climbing publications and most importantly via the climbers and spectators.
Each and every donation is to the value of £10,000 or the equivalent amount depending on the local currency and is made directly to cancer research. The facility receiving the cheque is chosen by the trustees of the charity using a selection criteria and much discussion takes place before a final decision is made.
