I'm climbing a mountain for charity and I need your help. In mid-July my team from Trailmixer and I will summit 14,000-foot Mount Langley in the Southern Sierra, and I hope you will sponsor me. I'm doing this to make a difference. Trailmixer has raised tens of thousands for LGBTQ youth and others since 2013, and I am proud to say I've climbed every year since the very beginning.
This year your donation will provide scholarships to LGBTQ youth to attend leadership camp and participate in outdoor education programs in California.
Climbing a massive mountain like Langley is no small feat. It’s a 3-day climb first to base camp, and then a Class 2 climb to the summit where air is rare and thin. I’m training carefully with my team, maintaining social distance while we tackle longer and steeper summit climbs every other weekend.
As always, Trailmixer’s climbers pay for all of their own gear and travel expenses. Trailmixer is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit and all donations are tax deductible.
Hello from the Trailmixer Team!
OUT Hiking for Our Community (Trailmixer)* is an organization of hikers that promote climbing events every year to raise money for the Trailmixer Scholarship Fund to provide more safe access to nature for LGBTQ+ youth. Part of the money will also go towards services we provide to our community. Trailmixer believes in the importance of helping kids engage with other LGBTQ+ youth.
Throughout the year, Trailmixer's members and volunteers participate in leadership workshops and community events to help provide kids with tools and skills to grow up with the confidence that they can be whoever they want to be in our society. We are working on developing new nature programs and activities with other factions of the LGBTQ+ community. Our work will grow more with your help.
So will you do it? Will you support us?
In order to maximize your donation, each climber will cover his/her own costs for travel, lodging, food and gear for this event.
In the name of all the participants and partners of Trailmixer, we thank you.
