A History of Climbing Mountains

In 1995, Breast Cancer Fund founder Andrea Martin accepted the challenge to face mountains, metaphoric and real, by climbing Mt. Aconcagua in Argentina with 16 other breast cancer survivors.

This journey and the Climb Against the Odds expeditions that followed proved to be a unique way for hundreds of survivors and supporters to honor the courage of those facing breast cancer and to educate the public about the Breast Cancer Fund's work to prevent the disease.

In all, more than 400 climbers have undertaken 13 Climb Against the Odds expeditions to Mt. McKinley, Alaska, in 1998; Mt. Fuji, Japan, in 2000; Mt. Rainier, Washington, in 2005; and Mt. Shasta, California, in 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
