SweetLiving – Mount Bierstadt Charity Climb

SweetLiving – Mount Bierstadt Charity Climb

 

Let’s taste the sweetness at the summit of Mount Bierstadt and help provide clean water through the efforts of Challenge21 and Water For People.

Join the Sweetlife team for this SweetLiving Adventure. We will come together for 14,060 feet of personal challenge, philanthropy and fun.

All proceeds benefit Challenge21 Water For People’s Time Well Spent $2Million Challenge. Water For People is a global nonprofit supporting long-lasting water and sanitation investments. Because everyone deserves clean water.

The Time Well Spent $2Million Challenge reminds us that for many women and girls around the world, an average of 4 hours a day is spent getting water. Our hike will take (around) 4 hours. Together our group of women can make it TIME WELL SPENT so sweet women around the world can spend less time on this basic human need.

We will gather at the base to gear up and then climb in various groups (based on comfort & ability) to the summit.

Mount Bierstadt is classified as a beginner, class 2 hike. You will travel seven miles round trip with an elevation gain of 2,850 feet. Click here for details about the route.

A moderate fitness level is required. This is a full day on your feet with elevation gain. Please contact us with any questions or concerns about this adventure.
