Last Thursday afternoon, seven Mountain Rescue volunteers dropped everything that they were doing and headed to Mt. Charleston in response to reports of a fallen climber. It was early afternoon, so many left work. Others gave up their day off. Each volunteer climbed into their personal vehicle and used their own gear to drive to Mt. Charleston, hike to the location of the fallen climber, and help with the recovery. Nearly 6 hours later, each volunteer headed back down the mountain, back to their normal lives. This type of scenario selflessly occurs numerous times throughout the year.
These are the people that you'll be supporting when you make a tax-deductible donation. Our July fundraiser is wrapping up, so make a donation today to help subsidize the out-of-pocket expenses that are incurred by our volunteers. Every little bit helps!
