I will be continuing my quest to climb all 46 high peaks in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. In 2015 I succeeded in climbing 2 of the peaks, Cascade 4098 ft and Porter 4059 ft. Only 44 more peaks to go. This time during a one week excursion I will attempt to climb the following mountains: Algonquin 5114 ft, Wright 4580 ft, Iroquois 4840 ft, Colden 4714 ft and a couple of trail-less peaks. I will have a guide to summit the trail-less peaks so I won't get lost. These mountains maybe small but they are steep and strenuous to climb. Not only am I taking on this challenging endeavor, but I am also fundraising to benefit the youth the Big City Mountaineers serves. With your help and my summit attempts, BCM will reach over 1000 at-risk teens nationwide. Thank you for donating on my behalf! Big City Mountaineers transforms the lives of under-served urban youth through wilderness mentoring expeditions that instill critical life skills. They 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 integrity, 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
