I'm a 54 year old woman who grew up in Maine and now lives happily in Bellingham, WA. I’ve been an outdoor enthusiast and athlete my whole life. Getting girls and women active and outside is my life long passion. I’ve had the privilege to learn that the outdoors feeds (and sometimes heals) the soul and that being active develops and builds a woman's confidence and self-esteem. Put the two together, outdoor actvity, and it's a recipe for an empowered, warrior woman. Serving as a long-time coach in various sports for young girls and as a volunteer ski instructor for mentally and physically challenged individuals, are my ways to give back for all the benefits I received from playing outside.
Why climb and ski Mt. Baker? It’s a large, beautiful mountain surrounded by spectacular views right in my back yard. What better way to enjoy this treasure than to reach this summit and powder down on skis for a good cause - a cause that is my passion.
SheJumps is a class act that serves an essential mission for gals of all ages. I'm stoked to accomplish this substantial climb/ski with a cadre of rad women who share a belief in the giraffacorn. My goal is to raise $2,000 by June 30, 2019.
Our fundraising climb joins women from across the country to ascend Mt. Baker in order to raise funds for SheJumps’ youth programs. SheJumps is making every effort to provide our climbing team with the best experience imaginable. This all-ladies climb will roll out with the true spirit of SheJumps, filled with encouragement, challenge and unbelievable stoke!
RAISING FUNDS FOR THE NEXT GENERATION
SheJumps Mt. Baker Climb+Ski contributes to the nonprofit’s Wild Skills program. Wild Skills youth events teach young girls the survival and technical skills they need for outdoor adventuring. These skills can be applied in any season and include first aid, navigation, leave no trace and shelter building. Our events encourage girls to learn new skills, take on challenges and think creatively which develops perseverance and fosters confidence. The funds raised from this climb will help further this vision. https://www.getwildskills.org
Our mission is to increase the participation of women & girls in outdoor activities. The SheJumps community consists of females of all backgrounds and ages who help one another reach their highest potential through outdoor adventures and education. www.shejumps.org
