WE ARE GOING TO CLIMB MT SHASTA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
On July 21st of this year, a group of climbers and I will climb the 13,164-foot Mt. Shasta. It will be the first of any such a climb for myself, and I look forward to doing it with CYC. For two nights, we will be together in Northern California, and the final day actual assent to the top of Mt. Shasta!
As a current student and former foster youth, I invite you to donate to this BOMB cause- yes I said it- BOMB! KABAM, SHAZAM- Outdoor activities are quintessential to any good life, and I encourage you to help me reach my goal so I can be apart of this climb!
A little bit about CYC and the Foster Youth movement I am apart of:
California Youth Connection (CYC), a youth-run and led legislative advocacy organization, is composed of hundreds of current and former foster youth. CYC was founded in 1988, it has grown into a powerful political force ran by those who know first handedly what problems need to be addressed and changed. There are approximately 12 million Americans who have experienced foster care in America, with over 400,000 children in the system today, and our goal is to empower those individuals who might not have received a typical home environment.
By donating to this cause, you are helping me live an avid outdoor lifestyle, and giving me energy and encouragement to continue volunteering for CYC!
