Legal Assistant Climbs Mt. Shasta to Raise 20k for Breast Cancer Fund

Legal Assistant Climbs Mt. Shasta to Raise 20k for Breast Cancer Fund

Last Saturday, I ran a little over three miles to help raise funds for cancer research and celebrate cancer survivors, but that seems like a very small feat compared to what Caroline Tice, a Ballwin, Missouri legal assistant, did for cancer research last week.

Tice, along with her friend, Jane Small of St. Louis, climbed Mt. Shasta in California to honor breast cancer survivors. At 14,179 feet, Mt. Shasta is the second highest peak in the Cascades.

They joined a team of 24 breast cancer survivors and supporters for the “Climb Against the Odds,” as a fund-raising effort for the Breast Cancer Fund. Together, Tice and Small raised over $20,000 in pledges.

…This was the second climb the women made for breast cancer. In May they climbed Mt. Washington in New Hampshire. To make Tuesday’s climb, they trained almost every weekend since November, occasionally in below-freezing temperatures.

Congratulations to both Tice and Small for undertaking their incredible adventure to fight breast cancer.
