Realty Executives of Flagstaff’s Climb to Conquer Cancer

For 19 years, Realty Executives of Flagstaff has participated in a charity event near and dear to their hearts, Climb to Conquer Cancer. With the next event slated for August 19th, the team is lacing up their boots with a goal to outpace the competition when it comes to raising funds.

The Climb to Conquer Cancer is one of many activities associated with the American Cancer Society. The climb is designed to unite the community to honor cancer survivors, spread the word about reducing cancer risk, and to raise money to help the organization save lives. The hike takes place at Arizona Snowbowl Ski Resort, with two challenging routes ranging from 5.5 miles to 10 miles.

The brokerage walks every year in memory of Nedra Bell, an Executive who lost her battle to lung cancer in 1999.  Additionally, the team walks in memory of the many friends, family members, and peers who have lost their battles to various cancers.  “But most importantly,” says Debra McCormick, CFO of Realty Executives of Flagstaff, “we walk as a tribute to those who have won their battles with cancer or are currently fighting.”

In addition to forming a team and participating in Climb to Conquer Cancer, Realty Executives of Flagstaff has supported the fundraiser in multiple ways over the years, from sponsoring mile markers to working water stations.

“Everyone has been touched by cancer in some way.  This hits our hearts, and we want to do everything we can to find a cure,” said Wayne McCormick, Broker and Owner of Realty Executives of Flagstaff.  Wayne recently lost his friend of 52 years to pancreatic cancer.

In 2022, the team was the top fundraiser in Northern Arizona, raising nearly $11,000.  Additionally, they ranked as the Top Company, Top Team, and Top Individual fundraising categories. This year, they are on track to exceed their previous year’s efforts.

“I love walking with my neighbors, and that the donations stay in our local community,” says Shannon Strazer, Office Coordinator. “Even if you are unable to make a donation at this time, we hope that you come out and show support for all the hikers participating in Climb to Conquer Cancer.”
