(May 5, 2008 - Boulder, CO.) The HERA Women's Cancer Foundation announces its second annual Colorado Climb4Life on June 14, 2008, a fundraiser to stop ovarian cancer. The event invites climbers of all ages and skill levels to join professional climbers and Colorado Mountain School guides in a fun-filled day of climbing, camaraderie, and raising money. Registration is now underway—www.climb4lifeco08.kintera.org

Climb4Life is open to women, men, and children of all ages and no climbing experience is necessary. Climb4Life Colorado features outdoor and indoor events at climbing destinations in and around the Colorado Front Range area.

Last year the event raised almost $20,000. This year the goal is to raise $50,000 to help fund cutting-edge research for early detection, better treatment, and prevention of ovarian cancer. HERA needs you to join in this effort.

"I believe this is an important event for the community. By climbing together, I get to help participants reach a goal, and they enable me to see the world a little bigger," says writer, long-time climber and HERA guide Majka Burhardt.

Help HERA raise $50,000 and sign up for Climb4Life today. The Climb4Life event also includes a raffle, Hang Time party, yoga, massage, and plenty of great food. Participation is limited, so register now www.climb4lifeco08.kintera.org.
