In 2011, we started a yearly tradition of raising donations for cancer research.

We all know someone who’s been touched by cancer, so “Climbing For Cancer” is our opportunity to make a difference. Cancer is serious, but so are we.

Since we began in 2011, we’ve raised a grand total of $36,737 for cancer research (as of September 7, 2019). Wow!!

This year, we are going for the gold. We want to raise $10,000 toward cancer research by our deadline of Saturday, July 25, 2020. Will you help us?

In celebration of this event, on July 25th, 2020, Boulder Karate students, dedicated parents and friends will hike to the top of TWO towering Colorado “Fourteeners”: Mt. Belford and Mt. Oxford, each towering over 14,000 feet high. This hike demands a whopping 4,500′ of elevation gain just to get to the first goal (Mt. Belford), then an additional 1,300′ to add on Mt. Oxford (optional), for a total of 5,800′ of elevation gain. It’s a big day, but cancer is worse. Get ready to put out some serious effort and make a difference!

Please email Climbing For Cancer leader Brad Randolph if you’re interested in joining the hike: We would love to have more moderately strong hikers with us on this beautiful celebration hike!

Master Brad Randolph loves Colorado’s big mountains, and has climbed all 73 points above 14,000′ in Colorado (including the traditional 53 “14ers”) at least once, including over 20 summits in calendar winter. Check out this video by Vasque made in 2014, shot right before Master Randolph completed “the list” for the first time:

Cancer doesn’t wait. Why should you?
