Climb Mt. Moosilauke
REACH FOR THE PEAKS is the newest addition to The Prouty Challenge Event series—athletic events, like The Prouty—which bring people together to take action in the fight against cancer. The 2012 REACH FOR THE PEAK climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro kicked off our hike/climb/mountaineering program with a bang and was a WONDERFUL success, not only as a fundraiser for Norris Cotton Cancer Center, but as an amazing experience.
For mountains are a special place, combining beauty, majesty, seclusion, and simple elevation to produce a matchless, near spiritual experience. It got us thinking about how to bring the Prouty mountaineering program to more people—to bring it home to New Hampshire—and to bring a very special experience to those who want to stand up and DO something to fight cancer.
It seemed only right to bring our first New Hampshire climb to Warren, home of Mt. Moosilauke. After all, Audrey Prouty, the courageous cancer patient who inspired the creation of northern New England's largest fundraiser, was from Warren, N.H. and where New Hampshire’s Senator Norris Cotton was born.
So we launched the Climb to Conquer Breast Cancer. We brought together those touched by breast cancer to challenge themselves with a hike up the 4,802' Mt. Moosilauke - all to raise funds for research and patient services at Norris Cotton Cancer Center. It was such a success we decided to make it an annual event and again we’ll climb to conquer, this year on Sunday, September 27, 2015 and celebrate our achievements of summiting Moosilauke and raising funds for cancer research with an all-afternoon party at Ravine Lodge. Come join us and sign up now!
If you’d like to experience reaching for the peak on Mt Moosilauke, to challenge yourself, feel the exhilaration, and have an experience of a lifetime, check-out The Climb and Ways to Participate.
Be a part of Audrey's Ribbon Brigade to the Top
Cancer is ultimately a disease about people--those fighting the disease, those providing care, and those who have passed on. If you have someone you’d like honored at the summit of any of the New Hampshire 4,000 footers or Mt. Kilimanjaro, sign up to support Audrey’s Ribbon Brigade. With a donation, your ribbon will have your honoree’s name on it and one of our hikers will take it to the top. Plus, you’ll receive a digital photo of it!
