Fitness For A Cause: Climb Mountains To Eradicate Cancer

The Climb for Cancer Foundation exists to improve the mental, physical and social well-being of cancer patients, survivors and their caregivers through funding of enrichment programs in arts, nature, sports and medicine.

It started when co-founder and mountain climber, Ron Farb, decided to combine his thirst for adventure with his desire to see an end to cancer in his lifetime. He has climbed five of the seven summits, the highest mountain in each of the seven continents, helping the Foundation raise almost $1,000,000 for cancer research and related support programs. In recognition of Ron’s hard work and dedication, the American Cancer Society presented him with the Excalibur Award in 2001. Ron has also been featured in numerous local and state television and radio news reports, and print media.

Realizing this is not a solitary effort, Ron and Dianne Farb created the Foundation with the hope of raising even more money to accomplish their goals of eradicating cancer while providing support for those battling the disease. For more information including how you can get involved, please visit
