Merci, danke, grazie!

The brightly coloured CAC t-shirts from the Climbers against Cancer stand out proudly in the mountains and are very popular in the climbing scene. Climbers against Cancer is a not-for-profit charity that raises awareness and funds for cancer research in the worldwide climbing community through the sales of their t-shirts and climbing apparel. John Ellison, an avid climber and founder of the organization, died of cancer in 2015. At the Climbing World Cup in Villars on July 2, 2022, a cheque for 25,000 pounds (approx. 30,000 Swiss francs) was presented to the Swiss Cancer Research Foundation on behalf of the Climbers against Cancer. Thank you and hats off to your dedication!
