I joined REI to make a difference... and this is just one way our strength can change the world.
This is the 8000 Meter Challenge, “Everything is AWESOME” REI Woodland Hills, CA official team fund raising page.
We will “Summit for Someone."
The someone is a child.
We will challenge ourselves against other outdoor retailers and summit the three highest peaks, otherwise known as the “Three Saints” in Southern California, in one day. This is the 8000 Meter Challenge.
40 Miles / 14,000 feet of elevation gain / 1 epic day
All three peaks are over 10,000 feet of elevation.
We, retailers in the outdoor industry, understand and promote wellness and adventure in the outdoors. But what if you… what if we… were never introduced to it? Imagine what our lives would be like. That’s why the 8000 Meter Challenge has partnered with Big City Mountaineers
Big City Mountaineers transforms the lives of under-served urban youth through wilderness mentoring expeditions that instill critical life skills. Their curriculum improves integrity, self- esteem, responsibility, decision-making abilities and communication skills in close to 1,000 youth annually. BCM has a proven track record of improving young peoples’ lives with: • Increased likeliness to stay in school • Reduction in violence • Reduction in drug use
$1,000 can make a difference in a youth’s future. Think about the sphere of influence this one child can effect, his/her friends at school and parents.
We commit to send 1 child on an adventure that will change the course of their life.
Thank you for your support.
Team "Everything is AWESOME!"
