Climb to Conquer Suicide
September 1 – 10, 2017
This year is the 3rd annual 46Climbs event. Join the community of climbers and hikers all over the country (and the world). It doesn’t matter if you have never climbed a mountain before or if it’s your profession, you can be part of this national movement. Just pick a mountain or group of mountains (large or small) and climb it during September 1 – 10, 2017. The event begins the Friday before Labor Day weekend and runs through the end of National Suicide Prevention Week.
“Wow, such an awesome event… Taking this cause to the trail meant the world to me. Hiking is therapy for me. Talking to people on the trail about suicide prevention was so beautiful. The trail community is such an awesome group of people and some really powerful conversations were had.”– Jordan J. Stray
“It was a very emotional time, but in the best way possible. I connected with so many people about mental illness and how their lives have been affected by suicide and it was quite the eye opener for just how we can all do more to bring this cause to the forefront and break down stigmas everyday!”- Holly Anderson
“This event allowed me to combine my love of hiking with a meaningful way to make a difference and raise money for such an important cause… It was a moving experience for me on a personal level because I did the hike in memory of my uncle. We also made it a family event which made it that much more meaningful.”- Carron
