Expedition Inspiration's 2019 Climb for a Cure -- Grand Teton
"Climbing, in many respects, is not unlike facing a life-threatening illness. You take every step alone, digging deep, focused on the goal and your own inner strength."
- LAURA EVANS, Expedition Inspiration Founder
Join Expedition Inspiration for a day of adventure, fun, hope and inspiration as we CLIMB to raise funds for breast cancer research and finding a CURE.
Our annual mountain climbs are foundational to the work we do in raising money for breast cancer research, as well as carrying on our founder’s, Laura Evans, vision. Our outdoor adventures provide so much more than survivorship – we provide those touched by breast cancer an opportunity to experience and enjoy the gifts provided by the mountains while building new relationships with likeminded people who support them in their own journey with the disease. We are not only raising spirits and hope, but we are raising critical funds for research.
One of the most recognizable mountains in the country, the Grand Teton has drawn visitors to the area as long as history has been recorded. A landmark for native Americans and the first European explorers, the mystique has always been captivating. Even the rights to the first ascent remains in dispute. A crucible of American alpinism, the the climbers who honed their craft here in the golden age went on to pioneer the big walls of Yosemite, Patagonian spires and the Himalaya. Become part of it’s history by standing on top and join us for an amazing summit and a greater appreciation for the remarkable alpine environment only the Tetons can deliver.
The funds raised by the climbers will support the Laura Evans Memorial Breast Cancer Symposium, an invitation-only conference that brings renowned scientists, researchers and physicians from around the world to share unpublished information, analyze breakthroughs, discuss advances in treatment, and recognize hurdles to finding cures.
Until there's a CURE, there's a CLIMB!
