EB SUPPORT CLIMBERS AGAINST CANCER

Showing support for Climbers Against Cancer

We're proud to announce that we are joining up with brands such as Mammut, Lowe Alpine & The North Face in support of Climbers Against Cancer (CAC).

Staff from the Vertical Chill Ice Walls (Manchester & London) and Milton Keynes Climbing Wall show their support by wearing the iconic CAC t-shirts as we announce CAC as our official climbing charity for 2014/15.

Over the coming months we have planned a number of fund raising events including lectures with Dave Macleod, Ice Climbing taster sessions at the Manchester and London stores where all money raised will be donated to the charity - more information below.

About Climbers Against Cancer

CAC was set up by John Ellison in January 2013. Following the diagnosis that he was terminally ill with cancer, John decided that he would use the power of the climbing family across the globe to raise money to support the fight against the disease and Climbers Against Cancer was born.

Mark Brigham, EB Marketing Director, says of the charity "I met CAC founder John Ellison at an event recently and was instantly struck by his unrelenting determination and positivity in the face of his illness. He has achieved great things in only 18 months and right then I knew that we had to throw our resources and support behind this fantastic charity.

"We plan to direct funds from in store talks and events in the coming months to the charity and will be seeking other ways to help raise money to fight cancer. Already the team have come up with some crazy fundraising ideas and we hope to raise lots of money in the process."

John Ellison says of the partnership, "It is fantastic news for everyone involved with CAC to have the company of Ellis Brigham standing on board as an official partner and will be a great help in raising awareness about a disease that affects so many of us either directly or indirectly."
