THE STORY:

Once again I'm lacing up the trail runners and participating in the 8000 Meter Challenge to raise awareness and funds for Big City Mountaineers. On 9/7 I'll hike 40 miles and 12,000ft elevation gain over 3 10k+ peaks. Growing up I had plenty of opportunities to learn and grow outdoors- now as a new parent I know I will be able to provide many enriching experiences to my son. . Adult mentors, family, awareness, and resources all made that possible. Summer camps, family outings, camping trips, day camps, Scouts... I know how those outdoor experiences fundamentally changed my life. They gave me a deeper interest in science, more confidence as a leader, and a changed perspective on our world and how we are interrelated on this earth. Unfortunately, these experiences are out of reach for so many youth who lack the resources, time, or mentors to bring them into the wilderness. Big City Mountaineers helps fill that gap. I'm raising money to help at-risk kids get experiences they otherwise would not. If you have the resources, I hope you consider donating, but if not a donation- take a kid or yourself out into nature, into wilderness, into the great outdoors and find your own experience. More about this great organization here: Big City Mountaineers transforms the lives of under-served youth through wilderness mentoring expeditions that instill critical life skills. We partner with community-based youth organizations and caring adult volunteers who act as mentors in the field to help young people realize their potential. Our curriculum improves self-esteem, responsibility, decision-making abilities and communication skills in close to 1,000 youth annually. BCM has a proven track record of improving young peoples’ lives with: • Increased likeliness to stay in school • Reduction in violence • Reduction in drug use https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBDNEmWbDQo#action=share
