Climb for Asha
People do not decide to become extraordinary. They decide to accomplish extraordinary things.
–Sir Edmund Hillary
Building on last four years’ achievement, this year too, some members of the Seattle community have come forward to do something extraordinary for Asha Seattle. Sandeep Nain and his friends are avid climbers, and they have offered to guide other novice climbers up some of the most challenging mountains in the Pacific Northwest. They are doing this to raise funds for Asha for Education, Seattle chapter.
While Asha Seattle does have a long-standing marathon and biking training program, we do not yet have one for climbing. This is the third year that a group of volunteers are taking the initiative to raise funds for Asha Seattle via climbing. They have trained very hard for months by themselves and it’s time to attempt Rainier Summit. You can read more about them in their individual profiles.
Sir Hillary also said that it is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves. We hope that this initiative will inspire more members of the climbing community to join hands with Asha Seattle in conquering the challenges of bringing about socio-economic change in the lives of underprivileged community in India.
