Climbers Against Cancer: first donation to Australian research

03.07.2013 by Planetmountain

The Cancer Council Australia has received a £10,000 donation from the initiative Climbers against Cancer.

From words to deeds: Climbers Against Cancer, the initiative that started a few months ago to promote awareness and raise funds in the battle against cancer, has just made its first donation. Founded by John Ellison, CAC has grown rapidly (so much so that in the first 5 months more than 8500 T-shirts have already been printed and sent to climbers worldwide) and during last weekend's Australian National Championships a first donation, of £10,000, was made to a local research institute, namely Cancer Council Australia.

As Ellison had explained in our interview last January, this is only the first of many steps and after Oceania the next donation will be in Europe, during the Lead World Cup in Briançon, France in July, followed by another donation in August in Canada.

The result is outstanding and has come about thanks to Ellison but above all to the unconditional support of all climbers, as Ellison himself points out "I'm really happy and proud of all climbers, without them this would not be possible, so a huge thanks goes out to all of them."

For those who would like to find out more, make a donation and buy one of those motley coloured T-shirts, we recommend you visit climbersagainstcancer.org.
