THE STORY:

It's not everyday an opportunity to do something you love lines up with a worthy cause you believe in.   Well my opportunity is here and I'm asking for your support by contributing to Big City Mountaineers, a great organization that get kids into the wilderness through mentoring expeditions.

I've joined a climbing team, put together by Michael Lanza, adventure blogger and creator of The Big Outside,  to summit Mt. Whitney the highest peak in the lower 48 states.  Together we will raise over $24k for BCM in our attempt for the summit.

At 14,497 feet, Mount Whitney's summit isn't a technical climb in warmer months, but during the winter and spring months our route, The Mountaineers Route, is full of snow. Crampon, ice axe, and rope travel skills, including fixed line skills are needed. During this four-day climb we will set up two expedition style camps with a push for the summit on day 3,  And even if we don't make it to the top, the money we raised will still go to BCM.  

How does it work?

It's pretty simple.  I paid a registration fee and agreed to fundraise $4000 for BCM's Summit for Someone program.  Then I climb a mountain. In addition to my registration fee, I will also donate the additional $750 to cover my guide fees paid by BCM.  That leaves $3000 to go that I need your help with.  And that's the easy part.....just click on the donate button!

Thank you for your donation and support.
