SheJumps Mt. Baker Climb + Ski

Over the winter of 2018-2019, a group of 9 women fundraised $20,000 while training to climb and ski Mt. Baker in the North Cascades of Washington - read the story on my blog! We had a successful summit day on Sunday 5/12/19.

The SheJumps Mt. Baker Climb+Ski contributed to the nonprofit’s Wild Skills program. Wild Skills youth events teach young girls the survival and technical skills they need for outdoor adventuring. These skills can be applied in any season and include first aid, navigation, leave no trace and shelter building. The events encourage girls to learn new skills, take on challenges and think creatively, which develops perseverance and fosters confidence. The funds raised from this climb will help further this vision.

THANK YOU to all friends and family who donated!

 

Past Fundraising - 2018

In the spring of 2018, we raised nearly $4,000 for SheJumps programs nationwide with our Grand Traverse fundraising team, Julie and Sarah - you can view their results here (bib 144). Many thanks to all who donated to the cause - especially our wonderful and supportive sponsors, Grass Sticks bamboo ski poles and Honey Stinger training fuel!
