Thursday Getaway: Klean Kanteen, Climbing Against the Odds in 2016
Breast Cancer Fund's annual mountaineering expedition in support of breast cancer prevention is almost here. The 2016 Climb Against the Odds will take place June 19th-24th, and Klean Kanteen's very own Clayton Bradford will be climbing this year. Clayton has been busy training to climb 14,179-foot Mount Shasta, as well as fundraising for support in BCFs work to prevent breast cancer – and he's getting more excited for the climb by the day. We asked Clayton how preparations are going, as well as why he's climbing in the first place. Here's what he had to say:
"I am dedicating my climb to all those with cancer who cannot climb themselves, whether they are to ill or simply can't afford it. Training has been a sporadic due to busy schedules, but it's been intense nonetheless. I'm excited and nervous for the climb in general! I am not a big fan of the cold or the snow, but have always wanted to do something like this..."
We're wishing Clayton the best of luck on his climb in June, as well has happy training until then. Want to support his climb and the Breast Cancer Fund? Please do so here.
