The IFSC Bouldering world cup takes place this weekend in Vail, Colorado. The event will also host CAC’s first donation of 2019.

Climbers Against Cancer (CAC) will be donating an amazing £25,000.00 to the Cancer Research Institute.

The cheque will be handed over by head of delegation for Belgium and Punksetter founder, Marco Jubes and UKC editor and one of the UK’s top female bouldering competitors, Natalie Berry. Both of whom have been long time supporters of CAC and were friends of founder John Ellison. They will be handing the cheque over to a representative from the institute just after the finals on Saturday afternoon. 

It is a tribute to everyone who has donated in any way to Climbers Against Cancer. Together we will make a difference ! F**K Cancer !
