Team8/Climb 4 Kidney Cancer Organization and Commitment to Donated Dollars

We cannot meet our goals without the help of many, many wonderful volunteers or Team8s (teammates) as we like to call them.  Volunteer and become our Team8. See the organizational structure and look for opportunities to volunteer.  We are committed to maximize your contributions so that they go where you (and we) want them to go.  We commit that 100% of donations from individuals go to Cancer Research.*  No board member is paid for serving on the board.  Your donations do not pay for travel for climbs we do around the world either.  These are all self funded climbs.  We also commit to donate 100% of net proceeds of all climbing events.

*Some corporate donations are given to support specific programs or events, but 100% of private/individual donations and corporate donations stipulated for research will go to research funding.
