We raise funds for cutting edge research through a variety of outdoor and other special events, to raise awareness and public support, and to promote physical and mental well-being of breast cancer survivors and their families. 

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.

Boise Take-a-Hike

Over seventy hikers participated in our Boise Take-A-Hike event on October 8. We lucked out with glorious weather and even better company as we hiked though the Boise foothills. Big thanks to our friends at Women's Health Associates who sponsored this event, helping it grow each year!

Huge Thanks!

We had ten climbers join us for the 2016 Climb for A Cure up the Elephant's Perch on August 20. This cohesive group was made up of mothers, daughters, sisters, survivors, fathers. While each of these climbers had their own personal reason for climbing, they all share a collective and very motivating force: raising money for breast cancer research. Each of these great people have been touched by this disease, and all of them wish for a cure. Thanks so all who climbed, donated and supported this special group of people! We are already looking forward to next year!

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."
