THE STORY:

What is the Hereos Project?

THE HEROES PROJECT makes the impossible a reality by empowering injured war veterans through physical and emotional training, allowing them to explore the farthest reaches of themselves and the world they live in.  These expeditions challenge the severely wounded to redefine their personal limits post injury.  The Heroes Project inspires our injured military veterans to find purpose, both physically and mentally, and ignites others to do the same.


What is Climb for Heroes?

Climb for Heroes is a non-competitive, family friendly day hike accessible to all fitness levels and age groups.   Children, dogs, and elderly will be participating.   You can climb with friends and family, form a team, or come alone and meet other climbers at the event.  With a minimum donation of just $100 per participant, Climb for Heroes is accessible to everyone. You can pay in full today when you register, or register for free now and fundraise to meet your goal.  BUT, don't stop at $100!  There are GREAT prizes for highest fundraisers and without your incredible fundraising and your foot stomping, we wouldn't be able to continue our important work.

 

What does the day look like?

Event check-in and base camp are located at the trailhead at the top of the Mount Baldy Ski lifts parking lot.  Check-in begins at 8:00 am and will continue until 10:00 am.  Tender Greens restaurant will supply breakfast and the all-important coffee.  You just need to bring water, your hiking daypack, a credit card for incidentals, and your fun self.  Once you’ve checked in, you can start your hike at any point. At Camp 1, hikers will receive a coin that will be exchanged for a Heroes Project t-shirt at the end of the day.  Camp 2 is located another 45 minutes up the mountain and provides an excellent resting point for refreshments at The Notch (the Mount Baldy restaurant), a picture opportunity, or a chair lift down.  Hikers can turn around here, or continue on to Camp 3.   At each camp (there are five total – including the summit) participants will receive coins redeemable for goodies at the end of the day.  Mt. Baldy is 10,064 feet and a little less than 6 miles UP.  Don’t worry, we have our veterans situated strategically on the mountain to provide you with inspiration and motivation.  But, you can come down at any point, trade your coins for schwag, and hang out with us at base camp eating delicious food (Tender Greens will serve an after hike snack), enjoying beautiful weather and mingling with really good people.
