Let’s make sure everyone can benefit from healthy lungs.
I'm back at it again! This time I will be participating in the Climb for Clean Air Alumni Climb on Mt. Adams.
Within the past year I have had the privilege of getting to know others who have been impacted by the challenges of asthma, COPD, lung cancer, or air pollution. Being able to find a community that cares so much about the health of others and the environment has been such a blessing. In addition to having fun outside, fundraising, and meeting incredible individuals from around the country, I have also grown as a hiker, climber, and mentor. In the months following my climb on Mt. Hood, I have been fortunate enough to volunteer with this amazing organization and mentor new hikers and climbers.
Over the past year, with this group alone and the friend made on my journey, I have hiked 113.9 miles with 40, 935 feet in elevation gain with multiple summits of mountians, both big and small. Each hike or climb requires you to work physically and mentally to achieve your goals. Whether your goal is the next break or the next summit, those around you have the profound ability to cheer you on and congratulate you on your achievements. In addition to working with others for a common goal, I have also grown spiritually. Being in the mountains provides me the solitude (even when I'm with a group) to talk with God and reflect on my week. It slows my life down and provides me the time to enjoy myself without thinking about work or school... surprise! I'm back in school working on another master's!
I know I've already asked so many of you to support me fianancially, but I would appreciate any donation you might be able to donate to the American Lung Association!
Every donation I receive helps make a bigger impact. Please help support my efforts to save lives, donate now.
Together we can fight lung disease successfully!
