Climb to Conquer Suicide
September 2 – 11, 2016
This year is the second annual 46Climbs event. Join the community of climbers and hikers all over the country (and maybe 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 2 – 11, 2016. The event begins Labor Day weekend and runs through the end of National Suicide Prevention Week.
“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
“Amazing. I love to hike but hiking for a cause was even more fulfilling. I lost my brother to suicide and I felt like he was with me at each peak. It was very emotional but uplifting as well. Thanks for organizing this wonderful event. “– Valerie Desmond
“Throughout the climb, I felt very close to my son Jason, whom I lost to suicide in 2007. I had some difficulty with the climb, but felt he was there with me, encouraging me along. When I reached the summit it was a feeling of total exhilaration. I will never forget it… You’ll not regret your decision to participate. For me, it was life changing.” – Cecile Swift Lippitt
