MY MISSION

Chad (on the left) on his climb up Mount Rainier

In 2007, three friends approached me with an idea:  We should climb Mount Rainier, the third highest peak in the U.S., and one of the largest glacier systems in North America. I had never done any serious mountaineering in my life, but four months later, there I was with crampons on my feet and a 40 pound pack on my back, well into a grueling 17 hour climb in the dead of night. There were moments when I thought, “What am I doing?” -- when the terrain got steep, the air got thin and dehydration set in.  But three days and 14,409 feet later, we made it to the summit of Mount Rainier. This was one of the proudest moments of my life.
