Adam McClare

Founder & Climber

Adam’s passion for the cause and his ongoing inspiration comes from his Mom, a cancer survivor. After watching her go through chemo and radiation therapy throughout his childhood, Adam made it his lifelong goal to help make cancer history. Now at the age of 28, he is more dedicated than ever and has combined his passion for the outdoors with his desire to help make a difference.

At the summit of Mount Cotopaxi

New Heights,
New Challenges.

We scaled the 14,411 ft. Mount Rainier and the 19,347 ft. Mount Cotopaxi in Ecuador. Last year we pushed ourselves to our limits climbing the 22,841 ft. Aconcagua in Argentina. However, this year we decided to turn it over to you to choose our mountain.


And the winner is Mount Kilimanjaro!


Kilimanjaro, one of the worlds seven summits, rises alone at a towering 5,895 m (19,341 ft) over Tanzania, Africa and is the highest free-standing mountain in the world.
