Climb a Mountain. Make a Difference.

September 6-10, 2024

Any Mountain Mt. Baker Climb

This September, Jess Wedel will lead our Any Mountain team up Mt Baker as we climb towards a world without ovarian cancer.

Join and experience an exclusive mountaineering fundraising program designed to give you the training, technical support, and guide services you need to summit mountains safely. This climb is open to all who are ready to take on the challenge of summiting a mountain.

Funds raised by participants will go directly to ovarian cancer early detection and prevention research awareness efforts.

Join The Climb

Prevention is the tallest goal of any cancer. Ovarian cancer – the deadliest women’s cancer – has no early detection test or universal means of prevention.  Last spring, we sent a group of ovarian cancer survivors, medical providers and caregivers to the rooftop of the world and put the first ovarian cancer survivor on top of the 29,029 foot summit.

We strive to raise 2.9 million dollars for ovarian cancer prevention and early detection research and awareness.  We hope to bring awareness about ovarian cancer risk to 2.9 million people.

Summiting Ovarian Cancer
Through Creativity & Research

Our creative projects play a key part in helping us raise awareness and spread the message to every woman.

There is an incredible team of gynecologic oncology leaders from around the country leading our research efforts.

Our Everest Team is literally summiting Mt. Everest to raise funds and bring awareness to the fight against ovarian cancer

Early Detection is Everything

About 20% of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer have a hereditary tendency to develop the disease. Early detection is everything. Take the quiz to find out if you are at risk.

You Can Help Us Reach the Summit

We have always said that this project is like climbing the Mt Everest of ovarian cancer. It’s huge, but it can be summited if we work together and just put one foot forward at a time.

Every donation pushes us one step closer to finding the answers we need to change the future of ovarian cancer. The Any Mountain Expedition Team is a unique group of ovarian cancer experts from all around the United States. Their research into detection and prevention will save countless lives.

  • Provide access to genetic testing
  • Increase awareness about cancer risk (particularly for diverse communities)
  • Develop better predictors of risk for sporadic (non-inherited) ovarian cancer
  • Develop an early detection test
  • Research on new surgical options to prevent ovarian cancer in high-risk women and preserve ovarian function longer
