For the first time, the HERA Climb4Life event will be held in Boulder, Colorado, June 15-17, 2007. This event will feature outdoor and indoor events at climbing destinations in and around Boulder, including the famous crags of Boulder and Eldorado canyons. Expert guides from Colorado Mountain School as well as a bevy of professional climbers from around the country, including Boulder locals Heidi Wirtz and Bobbi Bensman, will donate their time to lead climbers of all ability levels as they climb to raise funds for ovarian cancer research. Gear will be provided and participants can register at www.climb4lifeco.kintera.org. The event is open to women, men and children of all ages, and no climbing experience is necessary. Cost for participants is $50 with a $500 minimum to be in the raffle. The Climb4Life event also includes a raffle, Hang Time party, yoga, massage, and plenty of great food. Participation is limited, so register now.

The HERA Climb4Life Boulder/Denver volunteer team is also still looking for both climbers and non-climbers who are interested in working various aspects of the event, from belaying to hanging out at the reservation table. For more information, please visit the site, www.climb4lifeco.kintera.org.

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. For more information visit www.herafoundation.org. To schedule an interview with HERA Foundation founder Sean Patrick please call 970.948.7360.
