Lucas Parsons, who will represent Klean Kanteen at Climb Against the Odds next week, was featured in the Chico News & Review.

"Next week, 34-year-old Parsons will take on Mount Shasta for Climb Against the Odds, along with a team of about 25 men and women from across the country who’ve been directly and indirectly affected by cancer. The event is organized by the San Francisco-based nonprofit Breast Cancer Fund, which—like Parsons—is focused on preventing breast cancer by eliminating the toxic chemicals and radiation that have been linked to the disease. Andrea Martin launched the organization out of her apartment in the early-’90s after she was diagnosed with breast cancer for a second time. Martin made the group’s inaugural climb in 1995, when she and 16 other breast cancer survivors ascended Mount Aconcagua in Argentina."
