Climb every mountain
For the past few months, Jenny and Molly have been training—a lot. They've been hiking up a storm, lifting in the gym, testing out their hiking boots, learning how to use an ice axe.

Why?

Well, they're getting psyched to climb Mt. Shasta—a 14,162 foot mountain that looms in the northern part of our lovely state of California. It's all part of the Breast Cancer Fund’s annual Climb Against the Odds.

Together, Molly and Jenny have raised a combined total of 10,000 buckaroos that will go towards BCF and their goal of eliminating the environmental—and preventable—causes of breast cancer.

A few fun facts about Mt. Shasta:
  • It’s one of the largest stratovolcanoes in the world; the largest in the United States
  • It is the second highest peak in the Cascades, behind Mt. Ranier (14,410 ft)
  • The peak can be seen for 80-100 miles in all directions
  • It’s notorious for it’s lenticular clouds


The group will attempt to summit this Wednesday, the 18th, so think good thoughts. And stay tuned for a few post-climb words from the climbers.
