My goal is to climb the highest peak in every State. As a Veteran and an outdoor enthusiast, I would like to raise money during my journey for the Wounded Warrior Outdoors, Inc., a non-profit organization exclusively founded to provide wounded servicemen and women with therapeutic outdoor adventures across North America.(http://www.woundedwarrioroutdoors.com/about.html).
Every State's high point has its own unique challenges; some you can drive up to, while others the only way to get to the top is to hike in and then climb (sometimes taking multiple days). My goal is to not drive to any highpoint, I want to take the longest and most challenging route I can find to get to the top of every State. The reason is simple-I'm raising money per mile while climbing, which will encourage me from not taking the "easy" way up because I want to get as many miles as I can while attempting a summit thus raising the most amount of money as I can for a cause I truly believe in.
There are a few ways you can help out!
Pledging: where "x" amount is donated for every mile I hike while attempting a summit (I track my miles via GPS) and I will be providing updates on every summit.
Another way to pledge is to donate "x" amount for every summit I complete.
The last way is to do a flat donation for the cause as a whole.
I will also be reaching out to outfitters/companies to support me. As you can imagine this journey will involve a lot of logistical support (gear, travel, etc). I appreciate your help and thank you in advance!
