Our Partners: Thinking Globally, Acting Locally
Funds raised in the 2013 Climbathon will go to our partners to aid their efforts to support, educate, raise awareness, and advocate on behalf of GYN Cancer patients and caregivers:
From the United States to Ghana, from Austria to Antarctica, from Peru to South Korea, people from all over the world are joining in the first ever international relay for GYN Cancers. September 2013 participants in over 60 countries will make history by walking in solidarity with each other and with millions of women and families affected by gynecologic cancers. Globe-athon is an unprecedented, international call-to-action that will shine a light on below the belt cancers. Join us. Kickstart a movement long overdue. It takes just one step to make a world of difference!
Let Every Woman Know

Let Every Woman Know Alaska is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to raising awareness, sharing information and saving lives through local education of all Alaskans, support for those women living with gynecologic cancers, and programs and events provided specifically for Alaskan women.
