Mount Kilimanjaro Climb Will Benefit Cancer Center

Hanover — For the second year running, a team will climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center.

The fundraiser is part of the Prouty, a series of athletic events that benefit the cancer center. Those who donate $100 or more by Dec. 23 can honor someone who has been affected by cancer. A climber will carry the honoree’s name to the top of the mountain, where a commemorative photo will be taken.

During last year’s climb, the team carried more than 60 yellow ribbons honoring cancer survivors, caregivers and those who died from the disease. Photos of the ribbons were sent to the honorees when the team returned.
