21st Annual Jen’s Friends Climb Against Cancer

Saturday, September 15

The Climb Against Cancer has become symbolic of the hurdles that cancer patients, survivors, and their families must overcome to win the battle against cancer. Many people participate by hiking or sponsoring a hiker to celebrate survivorship; others come to commemorate the lives of those who lost the battle with cancer. And still others hike to raise money for their friends and neighbors who are being helped by Jen’s Friends. The hike up and down the slopes of Cranmore Mountain is approximately three miles. Participants may choose to hike the entire or partial route. Those who hike to the top of the mountain will be entertained with live performances by local singers and dancers and wonderful views. Snacks and water are also provided. After the hike, participants are treated to lunch and more live entertainment. Awards and prizes are also given out to the teams and individuals who raised the most money. This fundraiser benefits Jen’s Friends, an organization dedicated to providing supplemental financial assistance and other resources to cancer patients and their families who are uninsured, underinsured, or financially challenged. Learn how to participate or sponsor a hiker at http://jensfriends.org/wordpress/jens-friends-climb-against-cancer/.
