((NEED TO FINISH UPDATING THIS SECTION FOR 2013))

On June 29th, 2013, Join Team CA (or support a hiker) in our 3rd hike up Mt. Baldy in support of Heart for Africa.

The Summit for Hope began from a group of big-hearted, high-energy Heart for Africa volunteers. They designed this creative and exciting way to raise funds for Project Canaan in Swaziland. It started with the idea of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, East Africa, and has grown to include climbing in Taiwan, Canada, Kenya, Swaziland, and four states in the United States, with all teams summiting on June 29, 2013. Imagine people reaching to some of the highest points on earth to bring HOPE to a country filled with orphans and vulnerable children?

History:

The 2011 Summit 4 HOPE event was a tremendous success! Not only did each team raise a tremendous amount of awareness, but collectively they were able to raise over $100,000! It is amazing what can happen when groups band together under a common vision! The 2012 Summit was also a success, but we failed to reach our inagural year's goal of $100K+. But, we're coming back in 2013 with a new vigor and Team CA plans to blow last year's results out of the water!

On June 29th, please join us as 9 teams from around the globe all summit a mountain (or in the case of Taiwan, one of the world’s tallest buildings) to bring water, and HOPE, to a nation in desperate need of both.

Who:

  • Mt. Kenya Team – Robert Smucker
  • Team Taiwan – Frances Chou
  • Team Swaziland - Anthony Mutua
  • Team Colorado – Laurie Wagner
  • Team Hawaii I – Howard Hodel
  • Team Hawaii II - Larenda Bailey
  • Team California – Wolfgang Buehler / Zack Swire
  • Team Georgia - Bree Friedl / Jenny Keeton
  • Team Canada - Ruth Noble / Bobby Ramjist

When:

Each team will plan accordingly to arrive at the summit of their mountain on June 29th. Each team will have their picture taken with a Heart for Africa flag at the summit of their mountain.

Where:

  • Mt. Kenya (19,340’) in Moshi Tanzania, the tallest mountain in Africa
  • Taipai 101 (once the tallest building in the world (2,046 steps).
  • Mt. Hope - (3,727’) the highest point at Project Canaan
  • Mt. Plymouth (14,433’) in Colorado, the second tallest mountain in the lower 48
  • Mt. San Antonio (Mt. Baldy) (10,068') the highest point in Los Angeles County
  • Mt. Ka'ala (4,025') the tallest mountain in the Waianae range on Oahu
  • Mt. Mauna Kea (13,796’) the tallest mountain in Hawaii
  • Stone Mountain (1,686') the world's largest piece of exposed granite
  • Algonquin Park (1,466 square miles) the oldest provincial park in Canada

TAX DEDUCTIBLE
