Women’s Veteran Denali Climb 2019
UPDATE: We have raised $40,000 through our sponsors. Our sponsors have donated gear for the expedition and some cash. So we are halfway there from our original goal. Now we must raise an addition $10,000 for logistics. Logistics for the climb and training’s include food, transportation, some lodging, gas for our support vehicle, flights to the glacier, non-sponsored gear. For a team of this size, this is a very reasonable fundraising goal. We very much appreciate your help in getting this team of women veterans to the top of North America!
In 2015 VetEx sent a self-guided team of vets to tackle Denali (the tallest mountain in North America and the pinnacle of the land defended). Just a team of military veterans working together, running all their own logistics, and leading themselves to the summit. That expedition trained our vets to become leaders and took our program to another level. With this all women’s veteran Denali team, we intend to grow our women veteran leadership and prove to all women vets what is possible. We will film this expedition to help us tell the story of these women veterans. This will be the first self-guided all US women veteran ascent of the tallest mountain in North America. This expedition will cost Veterans Expeditions an estimated $50,000. We believe this expedition will inspire thousands of women veterans to reach their goals, get outside, and join our community.
We want to thank all of our sponsors and their great support! Hilleberg, Therm-a-rest, Osprey, Mountain Hardear, Black Diamond, MSR, Sterling Ropes, K2, Alpha Coffee and Stoked Stix!!
