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, 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.
While Asha Seattle does have a long-standing marathon and biking training program, climbing program has been one of the most popular Team Asha programs, since inception. Our Team Asha climbers have trained very hard for months by themselves and it’s time to attempt various Summits in Pacific Northwest. 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.
