This past weekend, Gorilla FC captain Kevin Zelko and his amazing team Cory Murchy, Eric Tringale, Jonathan Zwickel and Joe Hammill summited Mt. Rainier with the (26lb) Cascadia Supporters Shield to help raise money and awareness for Cancer Research.
The team raised more than $40,000 to fight breast cancer, and for the Fred Hutch research center. This climb was especially important for Kevin, who overcame his own battle with Hodgkins Lymphoma earlier this year.
While their climb is over, you can still donate to this awesome cause through the Fred Hutch Climb page!
