Cancer doesn’t wait.

Neither will we.

Date:  Saturday, August 5, 2023

Back in 2011, we started a yearly tradition of raising donations for cancer research and climbing a Colorado Fourteener.

This year, we’re aiming to reach $60,000 all-time raised funds. Please consider making a contribution to this massive cause!

Donations deadline: August 5, 2023

Boulder Karate hikers climbed Mt. of the Holy Cross (14,007′) on July 17, 2022!


Since we began in 2011, we’ve raised a grand total of $53,896 for cancer research (as of May 2, 2023). Wow!!

This year, we are going for the gold. We want to raise $7,104 toward cancer research by August 5, 2023. Will you help us?

In celebration of this event, on August 5, Boulder Karate students, dedicated parents and friends will hike to the top of a towering Colorado “Fourteener” (Castle Peak – 14,274′)!

Check out our video from our Climb For Cancer on August 3, 2019:


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 54 “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:
