Mike and I have been working on the fundraising portion of our climb for Summit for Someone. So far, we’ve asked friends and family for donations, but that’s all about to change!
Tom Callahan, owner of Cafe Zelda, has stepped up as the official sponsor of our Mt. Langley Summit! Though we don’t have all of the details yet, the plan is to throw a Summit Party on Thursday, February 26th.
If you live in Newport, plan on coming to the party. If you don’t, we’re still accepting donations.
Big City Mountaineers (BCM), a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is a recreational mentoring program for at-risk teens. The mission of BCM is to enhance the lives of under-resourced urban teens through transformative outdoor experiences. Summit For Someone is the primary fundraiser for BCM’s programs, which show teens a different perspective by taking them into wilderness areas in California, Colorado, Minnesota and the Pacific Northwest, with a one-to-one ratio of adult volunteers as positive role models…. Money raised by Summit for Someone participants directly increases the number of teens we can take out each summer on RELATE backpacking trips.
