From the Climb for Sudan website (http://www.climbforsudan.org/our_story.html).....
Inspired by the “Lost Boys of Sudan” thousand mile journey across three countries, two climbers will summit Colorado’s 58 14,000 foot mountains over the course of 70 days to raise $100,000 for the people of Southern Sudan.
Climb for Sudan is a partnership between Project Education Sudan and two individuals, Joe Rogers and Nick Spivey, in an effort to generate further awareness about the hardships of Sudanese life and raise money for PES who believe in the power of education for Sudan's children.
In commemoration of South Sudan's first day of independence, the "Lost Boys" of Sudan will join us July 9 on Mt. Evans for a day of celebration during our journey of hope, inspiration and dedication. Over the next 70 days, we climbers will make our way through Colorado and summit the remaining 14,000 foot peaks.
The money raised will be used for classroom and dormitory construction projects and to help PES immediately implement, impact and continuously support a solid educational infrastructure for those in need and to ultimately see that all children of South Sudan receive an education so they may emerge as leaders of their new nation.
