Climb for a Cure 2019 is upon us and for the fourth year in a row, Fight CRC will be summiting a beautiful Colorado peak in the prime hiking month of July! Our aim is to raise more research dollars while also deepening the bonds of our Fight CRC community. And, we want to encourage our Fight CRC family to get moving because exercise is important for everyone, and especially those facing colorectal cancer!
“What does it mean to be a Virtual Climber?”
A Virtual Climber is someone who wants to show support of Fight CRC’s Climb for A Cure from home. This can be walking, running, hiking, swimming, cycling (or another physical activity – it’s your choice!) After all, this is your climb!
Registration is free! By signing up, you will automatically receive an online fundraising page that allows you to spread the word about Climb for a Cure’s goal: raise funds and awareness for colorectal cancer!
“But I don’t live by any mountains…”
If you’re not able to “hike” – that’s okay!! You can still be a Virtual Climber! The Virtual Climb does not have to be a literal “climb.” It can simply be a walk through your neighborhood, a run through downtown, or heck, take a treadmill expedition!
You do You.
Depending on your own health, we encourage you to set a goal that is right for you.
We’d love to hear what you’re doing, so let us know your plan in your registration. AND – post about your progress on our Climb for A Cure Facebook Group. Let’s encourage each other!
Tell me about these fundraising goals…
Our Climb for a Cure fundraiser is designed to suit your fundraising tastes and comfort levels! Some people love an individual challenge while others would rather contribute to a larger team goal. Whatever you do – it’s up to you!
When you register, you have the option to
- create an individual fundraiser
- join a team that is already in place
- start your own team
We encourage healthy competition because it pumps us up! And, we need the excitement as we aim to raise $75,000 to support Fight CRC’s key efforts in advocacy, awareness, patient education and research!
