Alyeska Climbathon 2019
Please note: donations are not being accepted by this participant at this time.

Goal $500.00


Hello and welcome to Ellie’s “ Better Late Than Never” pledge page!

I’m going to say that its a good sign of my continued good health and state of mind that I haven’t had the time to get my Climbathon page done until 2 days before the event. As all of you know who have had the good fortune to be here in Alaska, it’s been a phenomenal summer has kept us all outdoors and away from our screens.

I have been doing quite a bit of traveling this year and have had the pleasure of visiting New York City, San Francisco (twice!), Tampa and Seattle.

One of my favorite trips though took place not far from home; the GYN Cancer Survivors’ Retreat on Yukon Island in Kachemak Bay. This retreat is made possible by LEWK (Let Every Woman Know) and the funding comes from donations from the Alyeska Climbathon.

I attended one of the first of these retreats in 2013 when I was newly diagnosed with ovarian cancer and it was invaluable. To be able to cry, to laugh, to commiserate or just take in the peace and calm of the beauty of Yukon Island with other women who are experiencing the same thing is indescribable! 

To learn more about the many educational, emotional support groups, athletic events and more that LEWK funds please visit the website at or find us on Facebook at Let Every Woman Know - Alaska and if you want to do even more, volunteer for the next big event which is the Arts and Healing weekend in February 2020. This is a weekend of lectures from leading cancer Doctors and Researchers who are actively looking for a Cure, an Art Gallery Show and Sale at Georgia Blue Gallery and an always lively and Rockin’ live music event!

Please consider making a donation to the Alyeska Climbathon in my name and Yes! I will be climbing the North Face Trail with all of the others climbers on Saturday!!!
