Honor or support someone you love who has been touched by cancer by adding their name to the 2012 prayer flags. The flags will be carried throughout this years journeys around the globe and ultimately brought to Mount Everest as we bring cancer awareness, prevention, and care to the world. During our first record-breaking event, Everest Rocks, we found the power and meaning of prayer flags.

The meaning of the Prayer Flags:
Traditionally, prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. The flags do not carry prayers to ‘gods,’ a common misconception, rather the Tibetans believe the prayers and mantras will be blown by the wind to spread the good will and compassion into all pervading space. Therefore, prayer flags are thought to bring benefit to all. By hanging flags in high places the “Wind Horse” will carry the blessings depicted on the flags to all beings. As wind passes over the surface of the flags, which are sensitive to the slightest movement of the wind, the air is purified and sanctified by the Mantras.
