Climbers to Scale Mt. Washington for Cancer Fundraiser

A team of climbers will brave the elements to scale Mt. Washington on Saturday, March 26, part of an annual effort to raise money to fight cancer.

The 5th Annual Climb for Cancer Care is led by Patrick Connolly, a 4th grade teacher at Longfellow School in Portland. Connolly founded the fundraiser to honor the memory of his late uncle, Rockin' Rod Scribner. 

Four previous Climb for Cancer Care expeditions - to Mt. Rainier, Wash., and Mt. Hood, Ore. - have raised $78,690.99 towards Connolly's goal of $100,000. Funds benefit The Marshall L. and Susan Gibson Pavilion at Maine Medical Center, an inpatient center of care for adults battling cancer.

This year Connolly and his team of 22 climbers will celebrate the 5th Annual Climb for Cancer Care by ascending Mt. Washington on Saturday (weather date, April 2).
