2021 Climb is on and

I need your support!

 

 

It’s official, the 2021 climb is on!  We need your support to make this year the best yet, so consider giving now and giving generously!   In the meantime, for those of you who are not familiar with the hike and how I got involved keep reading.

When it comes to providing Veterans with the tools to be successful during their time at Cal State University- Northridge the Veteran Resource Center is second to none.  For this reason, I continue to remain active through CSUN’s Alumni Association, which leads me to how I first learned about The Heroes Project and the work they do with our injured veteran community.

After learning a little bit about the annual Climb for Heroes event at Mt. Baldy, I immediately signed up for what I believed to be a hike up the mountain on a nice summer day.  On the day of the climb, a freak once in a 100-year snowstorm swept over sunny Southern California’s Mt. Baldy and threatened to cancel the event. 

After getting official word the event would be canceled and rescheduled some time in the future, a few dedicated hard-charging veterans who drove up from East Los Angeles set out to make the climb.  On the way up the mountain, they invited me to join them up and together we trekked through the snow up Mt. Baldy.

Despite the rain, snow, and freakishly cold weather that would be expected for this time of year in Southern California the event was a huge successWe committed to doing the climb the following year and even set higher fund-raising goals.  Unfortunately, COVID hit the scene and there was no climb scheduled.  That all changed when we got word that for the first time since COVID the hike is on, and will take place on September 11, 2021.

 

With that said I am signed up and ready to go but could use your help in two ways.  The first way you can help is to join the team and me on September 11, 2021, at Mt. Baldy for the climb.  Everyone from first-time hikers to experienced mountain climbers is welcome to take part in the day of fun-filled hiking and other shenanigans!  You can sign up by clicking here.

 

The next way you can support us is in the fundraising department.  As previously mentioned we set some really big goals this year to support our injured veteran community, and since I’ve started a little late and need to play catch-up I am asking you to click here and donate as much as you can as often as you can, then share this with anyone and everyone you know, or at least the people you think might want to support our injured veteran community and ask them to match or beat your efforts.

 

Thank you in advance for your support, I hope to see you on the hike.  Also if you want to learn more about The Heroes Project click here.
