Mission complete! Saturday was a challenging day, but 52.9 miles and 9,950 feet of vertical gain later, I am happy to say that I accomplished my goal! I am so grateful for everyone that has donated and shown support to Sky High Hope Camp. There were times that I thought I was down and out, but knowing that I was doing this for something bigger than myself gave me the energy to get through the finish line... On to the next! 

Hey Everyone! 

On October 15th, I will be running in the "Indian Creek Fifties" 50 Mile Run in Sedalia, CO. Although this will be one of the more challenging things that I have done, I am not just doing it for my own good. I want this challenge to shine a light and support a great cause that has helped so many kids through tough times.

Sky High Hope Camp helps enrich the lives of children and teens with current or past cancer, along with their siblings through a one-week, Colorado outdoors based summer camp. A diagnosis of pediatric cancer causes a child to grow up very fast. Often, carefree, joy-filled days of laugher and play with friends are taken away and replaced with isolation, appointments, and hospital stays. The opportunity to feel like a "regular" kid can disappear and be replaced with feelings of anxiety and embarrassment for being seen as different. Sky High Hope Camp is a magical and transforming place that provides these incredible children time and a community to put their worries aside and just be a kid. Campers build on their self-esteem, self-confidence, social skills, and independence in this mountain setting. They make new friends or reconnect with old, establish new skills, often participate in new experiences like rock climbing or paddle boarding, and create positive memories that last a lifetime.

As a kid that grew up in the mountains of Colorado, playing in the great outdoors with my siblings and friends was an every day occurrence. Through this, I have an everlasting love for the outdoors. I believe that every kid deserves a chance to be a kid, and every kid deserves to play in the great outdoors.

Sky High Hope Camp is solely run off of donations, and 100% of the funds goes directly to the camp. By donating through this link, you will help a child go to camp.
