I am climbing Washington's highest peak, Mount Rainier, this summer with an all-women group to raise money for SheJumps, a non-profit that empowers women and girls to experience and enjoy the outdoors. My personal goal is to raise $3,500 and the total goal for our team is $40,000. This money will all be directed to the SheJumps Wild Skills Youth Initiative, which provides girls aged 6-18 an opportunity to learn survival and technical outdoor skills at no or low cost to them.
From swimming in the Finger Lakes in upstate New York to hiking in the Rockies to backpacking in the Cascades, I have benefited from the ability to spend time in outdoor spaces, and I want to help others to have fun in and draw strength from our public lands in the ways that I have been able to. My outdoor adventures both center me and allow me to push myself to achieve new goals. Climbing Rainier will be the most technical climb I have ever attempted and I am excited to spend this spring and early summer getting in shape with the help of my dog and some good friends, and then starting the long journey up the mountain with other women to inspire and push me. Whether we are able to summit or not, I am looking forward to being on this inspiring mountain knowing that we have helped to spread knowledge of the limitless possibilities that our national treasures provide. I hope you'll join me in supporting this cause!

RAISING FUNDS FOR THE NEXT GENERATION
SheJumps Mt. Rainier Climb 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
