The department of Urology at the University of Minnesota is partnering with Team8 to Climb 4 Kidney Cancer.  We hope to bring attenteion to this underfunded cancer and raise money for kidney cancer research scholarships at the University of Minnesota.  Please see for more details of research projects ongoing at the university.  

In addition, we are preventing kidney cancer.  Did you know that a healthy diet, not smoking and physical exercise may actually help prevent nearly 70% of all kidney cancers? Kidney cancer is associated with obesity, smoking and high blood pressure.  Amazingly runners have been noted to have lower rates of kidney cancer and those that eat 5 servings of fruits or vegetables a day have 50% lower chance of kidney cancer. So by climbing for kidney cancer, you may actually lower your own risk of kidney cancer.

Please donate and keep climbing 4 kidney cancer.  Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
