It’s official—the 2022 Timmerman Traverse will kick off Sunday, September 11th in the White Mountains of New Hampshire!

Today, Traverse founder Luke Timmerman shared the roster of climbers who will hike 23 miles across the Presidential Traverse in the White Mountains over the course of three days. Each of these leaders in the life science sector has committed to raise a minimum of $25,000 for Life Science Cares and our network of nonprofit partners. Their team goal for 2022? $800,000!

Proceeds from the Traverse support our partners and partnerships providing access to basic needs, access to education and access to opportunity in Greater Boston, Philadelphia, San Diego and the San Francisco Bay Area. To date, the Life Science Cares network has distributed more than $8 million in grants and performed 20,000 volunteer hours.
