Hope on the Slopes 2012 — Mt. Hood

On Fri­day, March 9th, The Clymb took to the slopes of Mt. Hood’s Ski Bowl, shred­ding for a good cause: Hope on the Slopes, a ski and snow­board event to raise mon­ey for The Amer­i­can Can­cer Society.

We exceed­ed our  team fundrais­ing goal by rais­ing more than $2,000 in dona­tions and cov­ered around 150,000 ver­ti­cal feet on the slopes — both top 10 fin­ish­es. Thank you to every­one who donat­ed, par­tic­i­pat­ed, and stopped by our booth to show their support.

Check out more pho­tos from the event:

After the cer­e­mo­ny, a can­cer sur­vivor shares her sto­ry and express­es gratitude.


If you came out, we’d love to see your pics from the event. Feel free to share them with us on Face­book. If not, we hope to see you out there next year!

We nev­er pass up an oppor­tu­ni­ty to sub­sti­tute work for POW (okay, maybe we do, but not this week­end)! The Clymb will be shred­ding for a good cause this Fri­day, March 9th, and will spend an entire 24 hours on the slopes of Mt. Hood’s Ski Bowl. We’re com­pet­ing for the most ver­ti­cal feet and we are one of many teams par­tic­i­pat­ing to sup­port Hope on the Slopes; a ski and snow­board event to raise mon­ey for The Amer­i­can Can­cer Society.

The action starts at 1pm on Fri­day, and some­one from The Clymb will be out there tear­ing it up until 1pm Sat­ur­day. They’ll be live music, food, games, and oth­er friend­ly com­pe­ti­tions. The Clymb will have a booth set up, so swing by for some swag… words of encour­age­ment are also wel­come to keep our team going through the cold, dark night. If you’d like to show your sup­port anoth­er way, you can donate at our team’s dona­tion page here.  We’re cur­rent­ly in 8th place and striv­ing to do our part in help­ing Oregon’s Hope on the Slopes reach their $65,000 goal.

Next week we’ll share pho­tos and a recap of the event. If you’re par­tic­i­pat­ing in your local chapter’s HOPE event, head over to our Face­book page and share a few pho­tos of your own. Hope to see you there!
