We, Nabanita and Balaji, are aspiring, a.k.a. wannabe :), mountaineers. Every year we passionately explore the Pacific Northwest and its breathtaking trails and landscapes. We are also passionate about doing our small bit to positively impact the society.
This summer, we decided to combine both of our passions by climbing mountains and raising funds for Asha for Education, which is a non-profit organization working towards providing education to underprivileged children in India. We will be training and climbing Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams, Camp Muir and Mt. Baker as a part of the 2018 Climb for Asha team.
We are requesting your contributions towards our goal to raise a minimum of 1500 USD for Asha for Education.
Thank you for your support!
