Examiner.com – Osprey Sponsors Breast Cancer Fund’s 13th Annual Climb Against the Odds – June 13, 2012

June 13, 2012

Osprey Packs recently announced their sponsorship of the 2012 Climb Against the Odds, the Breast Cancer Fund’s annual mountaineering expedition for breast cancer prevention.

From June 17 to 23, 2012, a team of up to 27 women who have been touched by cancer will attempt to summit the 14,179-foot Mount Shasta, located in Northern California. As a corporate sponsor, Osprey will be outfitting each team member with an Ariel 65 backpack.

The Breast Cancer Fund – now celebrating its twentieth year – has led 12 successful Climb Against the Odds mountaineering expeditions around the world, and through them has raised millions of dollars to support the organization’s groundbreaking work to eliminate the environmental causes of breast cancer. Monies raised through climber sponsorship directly support the organization’s work to translate the growing body of scientific evidence linking breast cancer and environmental exposures into public education and advocacy campaigns that protect health and reduce breast cancer risk.

June 7, 2012

My favorite pack company, Osprey, is sponsoring the 13th annual Climb Against The Odds expedition which will take place June 17-23. The project will send 27 women, all of whom have been touched by cancer, on a challenging climb up Mt. Shasta, a 4321 meter (14,179 ft) peak located in Northern California.

Climb Against The Odds is actually an event created by the Breast Cancer Fund to raise money and awareness to fight the disease. This will actually be the 13th annual climb, which serves as an inspirational journey for the women who join the trek. Osprey outfits each of the ladies wit its Ariel 65 pack and one of the company’s customer service reps is part of the team and has pledged to raise $10,000 for the cause.

If you’re interested in joining the climb, it’s not too late. Find out more information by clicking here and fill out the application form which can be downloaded here.

Tips on Shopping for a Backpack

Shop at an outdoor specialty store

While big-box stores like Wal-Mart carry backpacks, you need to visit an outdoor specialty store to find a high-quality pack that’s going to fit comfortably and last a long time. Outdoor specialty stores not only carry the most comfortable, durable products, but they also have staff members who are trained to help you choose the right product that really fits. Of course, a quality pack will cost more, but I recommend that you spend a bit more on your pack, shoes and sleeping bag, because these greatly affect how good — or bad — you feel during a trip. Also, cheaper gear often falls apart more quickly, so, in the long run, you end up paying just as much with replacements. You can go to the websites of top pack companies like Gregory, Osprey and Deuter, and search in the “dealer locator” section for a store near you.
