June 21, 2015
In our third year, we climbed Mount Whitney, which at 14,505 feet is the tallest mountain in the continental United States. This hike required months of training for all ten of us. Starting at 3:30 AM, we climbed endlessly upward through forest, snow and rock into incredibly thin air, pushing our limits. We were incredibly proud to raise over $20,000 for The Alzheimer's Association.
