About Us

“In Life We Are All Climbers”

Through the worldwide climbing community, we aim to increase awareness and raise funds for research in the continued fight against a disease that affects so many. Climbers Against Cancer is run purely by volunteers and none of the money raised is used for administration, travel or any other expenses.

Funds are raised through the sale of our brightly coloured CAC t-shirts, warm and comfy hoodies, cool underwear and climbing holds via the website. Many fundraising events have taken place around the world with supporters selling the charity garments, climbing the height of famous mountains at their local walls/gyms, running marathons and many other interesting initiatives.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone around the world who is supporting Climbers Against Cancer. Whether a star of competition climbing, mountaineering, recreational climbing, someone just starting out in the sport or maybe a family member or friend. You have all played a very important role in getting the charity noticed around the globe. By wearing the brightly coloured t-shirts, hoodies etc. with pride we are collectively sending out a message of positivity, happiness and strength to a disease that unfortunately affects so many either directly or indirectly.

Who we help

All proceeds from the charity are distributed to cancer research facilities throughout the world. Our goal is to contribute in finding a cure for this life ruining disease.

Each and every donation is to the value of £10,000 or the equivalent amount depending on the local currency and is made directly to cancer research. The facility receiving the cheque is chosen by the trustees of the charity using a selection criteria and much discussion takes place before a final decision is made.
