Jennings Haug Cunningham's Climb to Conquer Cancer Team Raises More than $7K for the Cause

Firm name partner Bill Haug joins team for climb, celebrating his 80th birthday

Phoenix, AZ (March 7, 2011) -- Jennings Haug Cunningham is pleased to announce that its Climb to Conquer Cancer team, which included 26 people, raised more than $7,000 for the cause, ranking it as the top fundraising law firm team in the challenge and fourth team overall for the 2011 Climb. The firm has sponsored a team in the climb for the past decade, but this year was particularly special because Bill Haug, a firm name partner celebrated his 80th birthday the day before the climb, and joined the team for the hike at South Mountain Park on Saturday, February 26, 2011.

The American Cancer Society's Climb to Conquer Cancer is a unique activity held by the American Cancer Society that offers everyone in a community the opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer, on February 27, 2010.

Climb to Conquer Cancer is a one day event, where teams of 8 to 15 people participate in a hike through beautiful mountain scenery, and take part in the festival area. Each team of 10 or more participants has the opportunity to submit their own artwork for the back of their t-shirts, and to participate in fundraising for the event. Our festival features entertainment, food, and a special celebration of cancer survivors.

Because Climb to Conquer Cancer is a non-competitive event, anyone and everyone can participate. Teams form from businesses, clubs, families, friends, hospitals, churches, schools and service organizations. These individuals all share a common purpose - their support of the American Cancer Society's Mission. More information is available at: www.community.acsevents.org
