How It Works

When you register to take on this challenge, you are not just doing this for yourself, you are doing this for the next generation of girls. As a registered climber, you commit to a fundraising goal (a minimum of $2,500) to help support an entire team of girls this year. For every dollar you raise, you will be teaching girls that they are strong and capable of any challenge, JUST LIKE YOU!

Climb for YOUR Council

This year, we are excited to invite climbers to join us for the 14er Challenge while supporting their home council! Your home council will receive 40% of your total fundraising (minimum of $1,000 will go to your home council). Registration is limited, grab a friend and sign up today!
