Washington's second highest peak is the perfect spot to train for a climb up Mt Rainier or Mt Baker. We will head up the normal route, which presents climbers with steep snow and lots of elevation but does not have the dangers of crevasses, rock fall, and seracs.
Meet the climbers below, wish them luck and help them reach their goal to raise $300 for the climb.
The donations will support Seattle Children's Hospital in its mission to provide quality medical care to all children of the Pacific Northwest regardless of their families' financial resources.
Peaks of Life (Tax ID# 45-5305413)
is one of nearly 500 guilds and auxiliaries of Seattle Children's Hospital Guild Association. As a subordinate organization of Seattle Children's Hospital (Tax ID# 91-0564748), Peaks of Life is a non-profit organization exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
