Supporting Research

We host a bi-annual Symposium where the most preimmenent researchers from around the world descend on Sun valley, Idaho to share ideas and move the field forward. In addition, we select a prominent junior scientist to receive the Young Investigator Award for their distinguishing work in the field of breast cancer research.

Celebrating Survivors

In conjunction with the Symposium, we host a free Open Forum where breast cancer patients, survivors and their families can ask questions from the panel of researchers. We offer additional support through a number of events and wellness oriented activities.

Laura Evans, founder

In 1990, Laura Evans ended her 7th week in isolation during a bone marrow transplant to fight Stage III breast cancer. Her vision for combining mountain climbing and finding a cure for breast cancer  would be a visible tribute to the courage of breast cancer survivors everywhere.

Our Inspiration »

"Climbing, in many respects, is not unlike facing a life-threatening illness. You take every step alone, digging deep, focused on the goal and your own inner strength."
