2015 CHOEF Mt Rainier Summit
Organized by: Brian Parks
EVENT DATE Jul 17, 2015
The Chris Hooyman Outdoor Education Fund was established to honor Chris’s compassion for others, his love of life, and his spirit of adventure. Chris, a guide with Rainier Mountain Guides, died while attempting to assist a client on Mount Denali in 1998. Sustaining the Fund keeps Chris’s spirit alive by supporting outdoor leadership education, which had such a profound effect on his short life. Together they have provided over 100 scholarships to youth from families with limited financial resources. GOLD and BOLD are currently the primary programs supported by the Fund. You can find out more about GOLD and BOLD at www.ymcaleadership.org.
I hope you will help me in reaching my goal of $3000 for the fund. The trip is paid for and supported by professional guides who have volunteered their time to help us achieve our goal.
