Climb for Courage

Achieving Growth By Conquering Adversity

At Climb for Courage, pediatric cancer patients and their siblings are matched 1:1 with a U.S. Navy SEAL and guided through a series of rock-climbing challenges and a learning curriculum based on teamwork, goal setting and overcoming adversity. Their experience coupled with the long-lasting relationship formed with their Navy SEAL mentor provides each child with the additional source of strength and encouragement they need in their battle against cancer.

Climb Higher

At Climb Higher, past Climb for Courage participants have the opportunity to engage in a “refresher” climb led by a selection of One Summit’s experienced Navy SEAL mentors. The program is designed to reinforce the learnings and skills acquired through Climb for Courage and serve as an opportunity for One Summit’s like-minded warriors to connect and share stories of resilience.

I was incredibly inspired by the bonding between the SEALs and children. Watching the determination, exhilaration, and smiles on these kids’ faces spoke volumes to the impact.

I was excited to do rock-climbing and challenge myself with medium-to-high walls. After today, I learned that I can do anything I put my mind towards.

It’s an incredible experience, we get more out of the Climb than the kids. They didn’t choose their path, we did, and it’s incredibly inspiring to see them fight and best cancer.
