Climb to Conquer Cancer Goes Virtual
Aug 15 all-day

Out of an abundance of caution and due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Climb To Conquer Cancer of Flagstaff will move to the virtual space this year. The American Cancer Society’s annual hiking event that unites thousands of people dedicated to saving lives from cancer, will take place on Saturday, August 15, 2020.

Instead of hiking Arizona Snowbowl, Climb teams and participants are encouraged to practice the Center For Disease Control’s social distancing guidelines and plan a walk or hike along any of Arizona’s beautiful nature trails. Participants will be able to fundraise online and via the Society’s mobile fundraising app leading up to the event day. By posting pictures of their adventures to social media and using the hashtag #FlagstaffClimb, participants will bring awareness to the disease that will affect an estimated 36,730 Arizonans this year.

“The American Cancer Society made the difficult decision to transition the annual Climb To Conquer Cancer of Flagstaff from in-person to a virtual event this year, because the safety and health of our participants, cancer survivors, caretakers, sponsors, family and friends is of utmost importance,” explained Danielle Downs, community development senior manager. “The benefit of hosting a virtual event is that each team and individual has the unique opportunity to participate in a way that is meaningful to them. They can walk, hike, or run along any of our state’s trails, and since the event is virtual, it’s not limited to Arizona. Ask friends and family around the country to sign up and join you!”

The Climb to Conquer Cancer of Flagstaff is a non-competitive event open to all ages and abilities. Participants can climb as part of a team or as an individual, and registration is open now at FlagstaffClimb.com. Registration is $40 and supports the American Cancer Society’s programs and services, like the 24-hour cancer information line, and Hope Lodge, which provides cancer patients and a caregiver a home away from home if they need to travel for treatments.

“Cancer hasn’t stopped during the pandemic, and neither can we. For the first time in our organization’s history, our mission to save lives and reduce cancer mortality rates is at risk due to COVID-19. We’re in danger of losing a generation of lifesaving progress and scientific research if we don’t act now. Our events may change during this time, but their importance in the mission to save lives from cancer is not diminished,” said Downs.

This is the 32nd year of the Climb to Conquer Cancer in Flagstaff. In 2019, more than 2,500 participants hiked Arizona Snowbowl and raised over $145,000 to support the mission of the American Cancer Society. For more information about this event visit FlagstaffClimb.com, or call 602-952-7520, and like us on Facebook at facebook.com/FlagstaffClimb. Due to logistics, Arizona Snowbowl is not available to participants of the Climb To Conquer Cancer this year.

Save Our Stages
Aug 15 @ 6:38 pm

Independent venues are culturally significance in our society. Some of the biggest names in music like Jimi Hendrix and Elton John got their start playing at small venues across the United States. Now in 2020 they were one of the first places to close during the pandemic and they will, unfortunately, be one of the last to open back up again.

 

PromoTix is in full support of the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA)’s mission to #saveourstages. Right now there are two legislative acts that have been drafted to help save these venues:

  • Save Our Stages Act: if passed, would provide six months of financial support to help keep small independent venues afloat during this difficult time.
  • RESTART Act: while not directly intended for independent venues only, it is aimed at businesses with high overhead and no incoming revenue during this pandemic.
