Mt.Rainier has always fascinated us since the time my wife and I moved to the Seattle area. We always say that the “Paradise point” is so accurately named and we always have the feeling that we visited paradise whenever we make a trip to rainier. The sunrise point during summer is a heavenly sight. I always wanted to climb Rainier and get to see the top of a mountain which only few people get to do in a year. Team Asha has this program where they train people to summit this beautiful mountain and take a handful of them every year. This year I have got this golden opportunity to climb with a set of extremely friendly and helpful people. I have been training with team Asha and have climbed few of the peaks and mountains around Washington area. I am set to climb Rainier in July 2017 and what makes this climb more special is that I will raise money for Asha.
Please help me in my effort to climb Mount Rainier. Hopefully this is the first of many more real and virtual summits to come in the future.
My goal is to raise USD 1500 through this climb. All donations big or small will go a long way in providing education to underprivileged women and children in India. All of the money that you donate will go to Asha.
Asha for Education is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to socio-economic change in India, mainly using the medium of education of children.Asha has succeeded in touching the lives of thousands of children across the different projects that it has supported which deal with educational issues from pre-primary schooling to professional education in locations from urban slums to isolated rural areas.
