PETZL Receives HERA Power of One Award


PETZL USA received the 2007 HERA Power of One Award during the recent HERA Climb4Life in Salt Lake City. The award is given annually to an organization in recognition of its support of the nonprofit. The HERA Foundation's founder, Sean Patrick, presented the award, which was accepted by PETZL's director of marketing, John Evans. Earlier this year Evans launched the PETZL HERAbiner program to increase awareness of the Climb4Life rock-climbing event series that raises money for ovarian cancer research. Each manual, screw-lock, lightweight carabiner is etched in white with “HERA Climb4Life.” PETZL donates $1.00 from the sale of each carabiner to the HERA Foundation.

“We're so proud to have been given this tremendous honor. The work that The HERA Foundation does is truly incredible. It's great to be part of it,” says John Evans. “The HERAbiner is a vehicle to raise funds and awareness, but it also builds community; think of it like a Lance Armstrong Live Strong bracelet that is rated to 5000 pounds.”

Past winners of the Power of One Award include:
2006 Climbing Magazine, Carbondale, Colo.
2005 Forte Creative Media, Las Vegas, Nev.
2004 Black Diamond Climbing Equipment, Salt Lake City, Utah

The sixth annual HERA Ovarian Cancer Climb4Life, Salt Lake City, raised over $100,000 for ovarian cancer research and education programs.

The HERA Foundation is a registered 501 (c) 3, whose mission is to stop the loss of mothers, daughters, wives, sisters and girlfriends from ovarian cancer by empowering women to take control of their health, empowering the medical community to find new directions in ovarian cancer research and empowering communities to provide support.
