We will be doing 29,029 vertical feet (the height of Mt. Everest) by hiking to Stratton's summit, taking the chair lift or a shuttle down to the base, and repeating 17 times until we've met our objective! 

 

We are doing this as a team to raise awareness about the alarming suicide rates for veterans. (On a personal note, two Marine buddies of mine took their own lives: Roe Lynch in 1995 and Chris Mulligan in 2005. Please consider reading the essay Baseball and Bridges. I'm doing this challenge in their honor. -G.A. Cuddy)

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.

You can support our team's effort to conquer Mt. Everest and, more importantly, the missions of our foundation by making a tax-deductible donation at this link. Please check the "Write us a comment" box and enter the name of the team member you are sponsoring!
