Kilimanjaro Climb to Fund
My name is Rue Beyer and in August 2019 I am going to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa. I always saw nature as a place of comfort and a great teacher. It is the ultimate unbiased setting to be in where your accolades and mistakes don't matter. I always had a calling to the outdoors, but it was during one of the most difficult times in my life, that I picked up a book on mountaineering and set a goal for myself to one day go climb mountains. It was that goal I set for myself that helped get me through
depression and one of the worst times of my life. It took some years to get there, but I got there and the experiences and lessons learned in the mountains were invaluable. It brought me so much healing and brought out the best in myself. I’ve been climbing for six years now and have had the fortune of seeing some of the most beautiful and remote places in the world. Many people do not have that opportunity, but they can still experience the wonder and beauty of our natural world.
Nevada Outdoor School at its core is an organization that seeks to teach the local community about how to enjoy and preserve our environment. They help to provide the local youth with experiences that teach them problem solving skills, team building, outdoor ethics, and personal growth; something I know I would
have loved to have had when I was a child. All of these lessons began one step
at a time and this adventure up Kilimanjaro will be no different.
This August, I want to help my local community's youth be able to take their first
steps into the outdoors by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, one of the Seven
Summits. At 19,341 feet, I am looking to raise $1 for every foot climbed over the
ten days our team will be on the mountain with an overall goal of reaching
$19,341. You can follow along on our team's progress on the RMI Expeditions
blog and look for the August 3rd Kilimanjaro Climb with Dave Hahn.
