Hello CCI supporters! Thank…
Hello CCI supporters!

Thanks so much for supporting my climb in the Alps in honor of Canine Companions for Independence (CCI)! We raised almost $6,000, which is no mean feat and will help CCI continue to do the amazing work it does for the disabled. My family and I are so grateful for your generosity.

The climbing trip was fantastic, although not without its unexpected moments. When I arrived in Zermatt on July 8, it was clear that climbing the Matterhorn wasn't an option. It had been snowing too much and too often to make an attempt and unfortunately the weather didn't improve while I was there. My guide, climbing companions and I climbed a number of other 4,000 meter peaks in the area instead and still had an amazing and very challenging trip. There are some photos from the climb on crowdrise, and more at rosaandthematterhorn.tumblr.com.

Someone once said that if you're comfortable than you're probably not climbing a mountain and that could not be more true. But despite the challenges, or maybe because of them, there's something pretty fantastic about being on a mountain. It certainly simplifies things, which is a nice change in a complicated world. And I'm thankful to have been able to do something, even something small, to bring attention to CCI.

The pursuit of the Matterhorn isn't over yet - I'll be heading back next August to try again. Let me know if you're interested in coming along! Recruiting starts now!

Thanks again and much love,

Carey
