Climb for Heroes - Team SoCalHiker

Team SoCalHiker is back for the 2019 Climb for Heroes, and we want to hike with you! 

On Sunday, May 19th June 23rd (NEW DATE!) we will be lacing up our hiking shoes and hiking up 10,064′ Mount San Antonio – aka Mount Baldy – to support The Heroes Project. This non-profit works with veterans who have lost one or both legs in service, training them and preparing them to redefine what they can do by hiking some of the biggest mountains in the world.

UPDATE: For those of you who came out on May 19th, you know that Mother Nature had other plans. The Climb for Heroes was called off due to the snow and ice, but it’s been rescheduled for sunnier June 23rd. The good news is that you can still join!

You can join our team and help transform the life of a disabled vet. Each team member commits to fundraising a minimum of $100. You can donate it yourself, and get your friends, family and co-workers to chip in. If your company has a matching gift program, they can help, too!

About Climb for Heroes

The Climb for Heroes is a non-competitive, family-friendly event open to all fitness levels and ages. You don’t need to hike all the way to the summit to participate. This is our fifth year participating in this annual hike up Mount Baldy, and if you’d like to join us, you can sign-up here.  Select Join a Team and pick Team SoCalHiker. You’ll get your very own fundraising page to share with your friends, family and coworkers.

How to join Team SoCalHiker

If you’re also signed up for the SoCal Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge, this hike counts (assuming, of course that you summit).

Hope to see you on June 23rd!
