One of my favorite annual events is the Climb for Heroes up Southern California's Mount San Antonio — better known as Mount Baldy. The hike raises money for one of our non-profit partners, The Heroes Project, and we've been organizing a team for years.
The Heroes Project supports veterans who have lost a limb in service to the country. There approach is different, training with them to help them climb mountains, including some of the highest mountains on each continent.
This year is no exception. We are back, this time our team name is Social Hikers, and on Saturday, November 11th we'll be hiking up Mount Baldy.
So far, our team has raised nearly $3,400 for THP, and there is still time to help.
If you'd like to join us, sign up here. When asked if you want to sign-up on a team, say yes and then search for “Social Hikers”.
If you cannot join us, I hope you'll still consider donating. You can donate to our team, or on behalf of any team member. Start at our team page to see the team and make a donation.
As a bonus for everyone on team Social Hikers, Greg Glass will be hosting a homemade taco dinner after the climb at his home in Claremont. It will be the perfect finish to a great day on the mountain.
I'll be there, and I hope to see you there, too!
