Climbing against the odds

Durango native taking on cancer, Mount Shasta
Durango native Shannon Hahn ascends Putney Peak on Red Mountain Pass during a recent backcountry ski outing. Hahn has set a goal to raise $10,000 as a member of a 27-person team that will climb California’s Mount Shasta later this month in the Breast Cancer Fund’s Climb Against the Odds.
Hahn celebrates on the summit of 13,077-foot Snowdon Peak above Molas Pass during a recent one-day mountaineering course. She learned how to climb on snow with crampons and self-arrest techniques using an ice ax in preparation for an upcoming fundraising climb on Mount Shasta.

To contribute

Visit http://prevention.breastcancerfund.org/goto/shannon to donate to Shannon Hahn’s fundraising expedition on Mount Shasta in California – the Breast Cancer Fund’s Climb Against the Odds.
The Breast Cancer Fund has adopted Tibetan prayer flags as a symbol for its expeditions, and Hahn said for anybody who donates $100 or more, she’ll carry a prayer flag with the name of an honoree with her on Mount Shasta. The donor also will get an inscribed prayer flag of their own.
One hundred percent of each donation goes to the Breast Cancer Fund, which uses the money to further its research into the environmental causes of the disease and then educate the public.
“Breast cancer is so important. It’s a public health priority. It’s sad, but most people do have a connection to it, someone in their lives, so it’s an issue everyone should care about,” Hahn said.
