Climb for Asha

People do not decide to become extraordinary. They decide to accomplish extraordinary things.

–Sir Edmund Hillary

Building on last few years’ achievement, this year too, some members of the Seattle community have come forward to do something extraordinary for Asha Seattle. Sandeep Nain from Miyar Adventures, his friends are avid climbers, and our hard working volunteers 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.

Our Team Asha climbers have been training very hard for months 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.
