One week and counting. . . This time next week I will hopefully be catching some zzzz’s in advance of leaving between 12am - 1am to start my ascent to the top of Mount Hood.
Less than 5 months ago I came across the Climb For Clean Air page on Facebook and of course, the words “no experience needed” caught my attention. While the competitive, athletically confident side of me said “no problem”, as our weekly training climbs have unfolded, to say I have been humbled would be an understatement. Each week has not only brought a new physical challenge, but also a mental aspect I didn’t expect. The support from our volunteer guides and my fellow CFCA team members has been nothing less than amazing as we all encourage and push each other. No matter what the challenge, we are all there for each other and I have to admit, I’ve been on a lot of teams in my life, this is truly the most supportive, no-ego, group I’ve been associated with! For those who have supported me and the American Lung Association financially, your support goes SO far beyond the dollars. Your donation is making a difference in the lives of so many people with breathing challenges while showing your faith in me to achieve my personal goal of summiting Mount Hood!
As I prepare for my final training climb this weekend - appropriately Devil’s Peak - it’s not too late to join my team. Follow the link below to make a donation and join Team Roberts as we count down the final 7 days to summiting what John Muir called “the mountain of mountains”, the “ pride of Oregonaians” - Mount Hood
