Being able to share a rope and trail with strong, amazing women who the love the mountains as much as I do and who are passionate about helping others is an experience that still brings a smile to my face. Gratitude is the feeling that keeps coming back to me: gratitude for the friendships that developed, for the safe and successful climb, for engaging my friends and family in the journey through my fundraising efforts, and for being able to help children and families who are climbing a different kind of mountain.
