THE STORY:

This summer I’ve signed up to climb Colorado’s Long’s Peak with Backpacker Magazine to raise money for Big City Mountaineers.  Big City Mountaineers is a non-profit organization that instills critical life skills in under-resourced urban youth through wilderness mentoring expeditions.  Through this mentoring program, the organization aims to teach integrity, self-esteem, responsibility, decision-making, communication skills and other positive values, and has successfully improved the lives of teens by increasing their likeliness of staying in school and reducing violence and drug use.  I like to think of BCM as Big Brothers Big Sisters goes camping.

Big City Mountaineers currently reaches nearly 1000 kids across 8 US cities every year – your donation could help them reach even more.  BCM’s Summit for Someone program is the most significant vehicle they have to generate the resources needed to serve more children.  The program offers people like me the opportunity to summit peaks from Colorado to Kilimanjaro while raising money and awareness for the organization.  Money raised from this fundraiser will go toward improving and expanding the mentoring programs BCM offers to under-served youth and give a bunch of kids the chance to spend a week in the woods and potentially alter their outlook on life.
