Some people will go to extraordinary lengths to raise money for a cause that pulls at their heart strings. That was why one employee at Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach, a hotel that prides itself on going above and beyond for both its guests and employees, decided to climb a mountain for cancer – literally. On July 30-31, 2006, Four Season’s General Manager, Jamie Yarrow, climbed Wyoming’s legendary Grand Teton in tribute to the Four Seasons employees who live and work with cancer every day as well as for his brother, who fights his own battle with leukemia. He also carried with him to the mountain’s summit, the Flag of Hope – a flag signed by Four Seasons employees’ honoring the names of friends, co-workers and loved ones who are living with or have passed away from cancer.
