This climbing event, hosted by Black Diamond, will take place September 17–20 at the Black Diamond campus and helps raise money for ovarian cancer research and awareness initiatives. Men, women and teens are invited to attend and climb for a cure, whether you’re a newcomer or pro. Professional climbers will be on hand to encourage you and help you learn and build climbing skills in small groups. Climb4Life also includes parties, yoga classes, massages, a film festival and more. Two Utah-based organizations will benefit from money raised: Woman2Woman, a community-based support group for women with ovarian cancer, and the Utah Ovarian Cancer Care Initiative. Registration fee $75, minimum fund-raising $125. herafoundation.org
