I work at Wish of A Lifetime- a non profit organization that works to grant life enriching wishes to deserving older adults. Our organization began a campaign that asks Coloradan's to reach a summit of one of the state's many 14ers, and to dedicate their hike to an older adult who has had a significant impact on them. When I summited Mount Bierstadt last month, I took with me the memory of my loving grandmother. My grandmother was always such an incredibly positive presence in my life. She always had immense confidence in me to achieve something special, even if I was unsure of it myself. Through completing this challenge, I proved my grandmother right once again. It has been my experience that so many older adults have pushed their loved ones to become better, more well rounded people. We are so excited to invite you to join our cause and honor all the ways that an older adult in your life has helped you reach your personal summits, just like my grandmother did for me so many times.
