Our symbols include these Tibetan prayer flags which have come to represent strengh, hope, good health and well-being.
The flags are very fragile, and as the wind blows through them and they slowly unravel, pieces of fabric fly into the air and each strand represents a prayer of good hope for that person it represents.
So we raise funds by carrying prayer flags, dedicated to cancer patients by loved ones, on all our journeys. Up high mountains, mountains that take a lot of effort and training, the flags reach the summit where they are unfurled in honor of those down below who continue to overcome challenges of their own. Honorees, sponsors and friends can follow the flags' journeys on our blog
Eventually, our climbers will place the prayer flags on a Tibetan shrine at the Base Camp of Mt Everest, where they will hang alongside many other flags, slowly releasing their threads one by one until they disintegrate into the wind.
