Challenging, Inspiring and So Empowering!!

“The 46Climbs event for me was challenging, inspiring and so empowering. It was the best, most needed therapy for me as I lost my 27 year old son to suicide on 6/28/2017. I will continue to climb until these knees of mine can’t do it. I am honored to be apart of the 46Climbs family”. […]

Important Conversations

It was an incredibly moving experience and I let myself fully acknowledge every emotion I felt during the hike. Having spent the last year recovering from a physical injury and facing my […]

A Voice for Those in Need

So many wish to speak out and 46Climbs allowed me to be a voice for those in need of our support understanding and encouragement. Looking forward […]

Divine Intervention

“Spending time with close friends for a great cause found us on a trail new to us, which serendipitously aligned us with a random person who had lost a brother to suicide. It was and is divine intervention that will propel this cause to touch others in a wonderful loving way”.  – Denise Gruttadaro
