Steamboat Olympian raises funds to help fight breast cancer (Steamboat Today, 4/11/2012)


Our Climb Against the Odds 2012 team is hard at work training and fundraising before the June expedition. Among them is teammember Tarsha Ebbern, an Olympic skier from Steamboat Springs, Colo. Steamboat Today introduced Tarsha and her reasons for climbing in an article this week:

We're cheering on Tarsha and all the climbers as the months before climb week slip away. Learn more about Climb Against the Odds and sponsor a climber on our website.
