BENEFITING: Water For People

EVENT DATE: Sep 02, 2016

Climb for Water

THE STORY:

Water is life. Everyone knows that. But did you know that around the world nearly 1 billion people do not have access to safe drinking water and 2.6 billion are without adequate sanitation facilities? Every day, nearly 5,000 people who share our planet die from water-related illnesses, and the vast majority are children. We have a responsibility to see that everyone has a chance to benefit from life’s most basic need.

What started as a few friends fulfilling a life-long dream to climb one of the tallest mountains on earth, evolved into our desire to use the experience to raise awareness of the water crisis facing the undeveloped world in a unique and meaningful way. Since 2011 we have been climbing higher and working harder for those who can't help themselves. We have raised nearly $50,000 through 3 different campaigns over the last 5 years and we are humbly asking for your support for campaign #4.

The climbing team has aligned with Water For People, an organization that helps people in developing countries improve the quality of life by supporting the development of locally sustainable drinking water resources and sanitation facilities. Our modest goal of $5000 alone is enough to provide clean water and change the lives of nearly 1,000 people and bring hope to countless others in the generations who follow.

We are also climbing this year for our fallen comrade, Paul Judge. Paul passed away suddenly while mountaineering in Mexico in March 2016. He was preparing for his 3rd Climb for Water campaign and would have wanted us to continue his legacy. His passion was not only climbing but also Climb for Water and the help it provides to others. Please give generously in his honor.

Our target for 2016 is Mount Washington in New Hampshire USA. Although not the tallest mountain we have climbed, it is famously known as the "home of the world's worst weather" where wind speeds have been measured at over 200 mph.

Wish us luck!
