BENEFITING: Big City Mountaineers
EVENT DATE: Mar 04, 2017
Elizabeth Williams, Emma Walker, Georgina Miranda, and Jessica Hamel will be taking on Pico De Orizaba (the tallest peak in Mexico) to raise awareness and money for Big City Mountaineers. The project will focus on how the outdoors has impacted each climber, given them the strength and confidence to take on this feat, their passion for the outdoors and the kids they will impact.
Big City Mountaineers transforms the lives of under-served youth through wilderness mentoring expeditions that instill critical life skills. This project will directly impact the youth by strengthening awareness of Big City Mountaineers and donating to support the expeditions. Big City Mountaineers is a 501c3. All sponsorship donations will go directly to BCM and will be tax-deductible.
When not focused on BCM as the Director of Programs, she enjoys skiing, climbing, and mountain biking. She has skied for the last 40 consecutive months.
Emma has instructed & mentored for BCM. These days, she’s a freelance writer & snow geek. She once spent January in a tent in the Alaskan backcountry and lived to tell about it.
Jessica runs BCM's social media. When she's not online, you can find her running. She's been known to take the 100-mile challenge from time to time.
Georgina is a BCM Board Member and Founder of Altitude Seven. She loves climbing, skiing, and international traveling adventures. She has climbed 6 of the 7 summits.
