Climbing for Cancer

Cancer and COVID won’t wait.

So why should we?

Date:  Sat July 17, 2021


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

This year, we’re allowing you to donate to the organization of your choice (cancer and/or COVID relief) and LET US KNOW how much you donated so we can track our progress!

Boulder Karate hikers with Dojo Source and Battle Mom display our all-new banner on Mt. Belford (14,197′) on August 1st, 2020!

Donation suggestions:

Boulder County COVID Relief

Navajo Nation

American Cancer Society

*We want to track our progress as a team, so please LET US KNOW how much you donated and we’ll add it to our Team Total!


Since we began in 2011, we’ve raised a grand total of $43,252 for cancer research (as of August 17, 2020). Wow!!

Next year, we are going for the gold. We want to raise $10,000 toward COVID and cancer research by our deadline of Saturday, July 17, 2021. Will you help us?

In celebration of this event, on August 1st, 2020, Boulder Karate students, dedicated parents and friends will hike to the top of a towering Colorado “Fourteener” (2021 mountain TBA)!


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 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:

COVID and cancer don’t wait. Why should you? Consider making a donation.
