Expedition for Hope combines the thrill of adventure with the compassion for children battling cancer. Chad Barrett and his team have just completed their first adventure of climbing Mount Hood in Portland, OR on June 8, 2016, to raise funds and awareness for the foundation that helped Chad’s family when they lost his 12-year-old daughter, Kristina, to childhood cancer–Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation (CCRF).
Carrying on Kristina’s legacy of hope, Chad’s mission is to bring this hope to 1,000s of children facing their own mountains of childhood cancer and bring a smile to their faces. That’s why Chad loves CCRF’s mission which is “creating smiles, inspiring hope, and rediscovering childhood.”
You can help! Chad’s goal for September 2017 is to raise $25,000 for CCRF. Since September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, this is the perfect time to help Chad and his Expedition for Hope team to reach their goal.

No parent should ever hear these words, “Your child has cancer.” However, 43 children are diagnosed with cancer everyday. Each of these children has a massive mountain to climb. And they certainly need help.
Mount Hood stands at 11,239 feet, and we climbed it June, 2016, for Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation (CCRF)! CCRF assists children under the age of 18 and their families who are facing the hardships of a cancer diagnosis. The Foundation focuses on improving the mental, social and emotional well-being of these families while helping to minimize the devastation that cancer can cause.
So your donation will greatly help our cause of bringing smiles to the faces of children all across the U.S. 100% of your donation goes directly to CCRF.
“Thank you for giving, and whatever you do, keep climbing!” – Chad Barrett, founder of Expedition for Hope
