BENEFITING: Big City Mountaineers
EVENT DATE: Jul 07, 2017
This July I'll be climbing the Grand Tetons with MtnMeister Podcast! The Grand Teton (13,770 feet) is one of the world’s most beautiful mountains. Since 1968, Jackson Hole Mountain Guides has provided mountain guiding services on the Grand and in many other locations. Our 3-day Grand Teton climb involves 14 miles round-trip, 14,000 feet of combined elevation gain and loss, extensive scrambling and fifth class (5.6) climbing on the way to the summit. How does it work? Before I climb I must raise $4,000. Money raised helps trouble kids and transforms the lives of under-resourced urban youth through wilderness mentoring expeditions that instill critical life skills. We partner with community-based youth organizations and caring adult volunteers who act as mentors in the field to help young people realize their potential. Our curriculum improves integrity, self- esteem, responsibility, decision-making abilities and communication skills in close to 1,000 youth annually.
