A quartet of local men will be aiding and raising awareness for pediatric research at McMaster University with a Box Climb, when they scale the Matterhorn mountain in Switzerland this summer.

Mike Strange, Vic Pietrangelo, John Ventresca and Mike Dicienzo from Niagara Falls will be donating half of proceeds from their climb to Sheila Singh’s lab. Singh is a scientist with the McMaster Stem Cell and Cancer Research Institute (SCC-RI), an associate professor of surgery for the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine and a pediatric neurosurgeon for Hamilton Health Sciences.

Strange, a former Olympic boxer, has previously donated proceeds to Singh’s Lab from a Box Run, where he and his group ran across Eastern Canada. He seeks to fight and knock out children’s cancer. To learn more, visit the website or Facebook page.
