Greetings friends, family, colleagues and cohorts!
I'm involved in another charity death climb this year and I need your support!
I’m once again participating in Backpacker Magazine’s “Summit for Someone” program - a benefit mountain climb in support of Big City Mountaineers, a non-profit program which provides wilderness mentoring for urban youth. My 2013 climb on Mt. Rainier helped BCM reach over 500 at-risk teens nationwide, and I’m honored to be involved with the program for a third time around!
This August, I'll be joining a new team of SFS climbers to summit Rocky Mountain National Park's 14,259 ft Long's Peak in Colorado. While I've already raised $3,600 towards the cause, I have an additional $600 to go, and I’m depending on YOU, my dears, for help!
Your donation is tax-deductible, will change the lives of hundreds of teens, and will earn my lifelong adoration and gratitude. Donors, check your mailbox for a flood of photo postcards, thank you notes, and random greetings throughout the year!
You can donate online with a credit card by clicking the blue 'Donate' button RIGHT NOW!
Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions at any time. Thanks SO much for your encouragement, friendship, & love!
