What is this lunacy? Well, we're not actually going to Nepal.
We will be doing 29,029 vertical feet (the height of Mt. Everest) at Stratton Mountain (VT) in October 2023. We're going to hike to the summit, take the chair lift or shuttle down to the base, and repeat 17 times until we've met our objective!
Why? We are doing this as a team to raise awareness about the alarming suicide rates for veterans. Our team is not just concerned with the actual suicide rate for veterans, but also the rate of attempted suicides that is estimated to be at least twenty times higher. That rarely gets addressed. We cannot stop suicides after they happen; we must work to stop the attempts.
We are proud to partner with The 988 Initiative to help create conversations about mental health and suicide prevention.
