What's up air lovers!? My name is Amanda Parkhurst, and the reason why I chose this climb is because my life has been directly touched by lung disease, lung cancer, COPD and asthma.
Wanna see what it looks like to train for climbing mountains?!

I'm climbing for my Grandmother, Kathie Kent, lung cancer (ass kicker!)
For my Papa, Larry Kent, COPD.
& for my departed Grandfather, Woody Ellingson.
Let’s make sure everyone can benefit from healthy lungs.
Chances are you know someone who has faced the challenges of asthma, COPD, lung cancer or air pollution. By making a donation on my behalf, you will be helping the American Lung Association provide community based education programs, fight for cleaner air standards and fund life-saving research. With your help, we will fight against lung disease and for lung health. We will be making a positive difference for all of the parents who have a child with asthma, the people who struggle daily with COPD and the mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children and friends who get diagnosed with lung cancer.
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!
Since my last post, with all of your generous help, we have raised $2,374 more dollars towards my 5K goal!
Since registration, I have climbed more than 41 miles and 12,267ft in elevation gain collectively!
I had my first trail session with the Climb for Clean Air climbers and awesome volunteers & I can already foresee this climbing season to be spectacular!
Thank you everyone who has supported me thus far. This experience has been so inspiring and we are just getting started!

Training.. training.. training..
Just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who has donated so far.
We made a super healthy start to reaching my goal of $5,000! From registration day, November 26th, we've raised $1026.00!
I've been doing a whole lot of huffing, puffing, hiking in our PNW wonderland and stair steppin at the gym to get ready for this big climb. If you are curious about where I've been training, feel free to check out my trips on Instagram:
So far in my journey I have hiked 17.5 miles and gained a total of 6080 feet of elevation!
Thank you for your support! It is an honor to climb for those who cannot. <3
