Cancer is an ugly thing and I cannot think of one person I know that has not been impacted by it in someway shape or form. Johns Hopkins Carey Business School is excited to partner with Climb for Hope for an inspiring team climb to the top of majestic Mt. Adams (12,280) while raising funds and awareness for research to find a cure for breast cancer and multiple sclerosis. Since its inception, Climb For Hope has helped over 100 climbers to summit mountains on 4 continents, while raising over $800,000.
"Climb for hope raises funds to support the development of a completely new way to treat breast cancer and multiple sclerosis by using vaccines as a tool to treat cancer and MS. Because cancer cells come from your own tissues, your immune system recognizes them as you and doesn't attack them. That's why most treatments target the cancer directly. A cancer vaccine, by contrast, may change the way your body sees and reacts to the cancer."
The Carey team will put our school’s values into action by demonstrating relentless advancement in pursuit of not just the summit, but advancement in breast cancer and MS research. We will pique our boundless curiosity by learning how much we can actually accomplish on the mountain and in medical research through collaborative leadership. Together, with unwavering humanity, Carey and Climb for Hope will make impact in the fight to eliminate breast cancer and MS.
Please support our team as we climb in honor of this important, pioneering work performed by our very own Johns Hopkins researchers. Learn more here.
