Description

Welcome to The Nation's Premier Hiking Event! The largest annual fundraiser for the nonprofit Mount Washington Observatory, Seek the Peak welcomes hikers of all ages and abilities to the rugged, windswept trails of Mount Washington, New Hampshire. Registrants are asked to raise a minimum of $200 as part of their participation and in turn they are awarded with fabulous prizes and more! Be one of the first 500 to raise $200 and earn a Seek the Peak Eastern Mountain Sports backpack. Boasting world-class alpine trekking and stunning views to the Atlantic Ocean, Canada, the Adirondack mountains and beyond, Mount Washington is the pinnacle of the New England hiking scene. Scaling its windswept summit as a participant in Seek the Peak offers an immensely rewarding physical challenge, while benefitting a great cause: the legendary Mount Washington Observatory. Sponsored by Eastern Mountain Sports, Subaru and Vasque, Seek the Peak is Mount Washington Observatory's largest fundraiser. Since the event was founded in 2001, Seek the Peak has raised well over $1.3 million for the nonprofit institution, helping it maintain its famous weather station on the summit of Mount Washington and continue its important work collecting weather data, performing research, and educating the public about the science of climate and weather. Participating in Seek the Peak is not only fun, but rewarding, too. Participants are thanked for their efforts with awesome freebies, a kick-off party, tours of our famous mountaintop weather station, and a huge after party with live music, great food, and thousands of dollars in prize giveaways. It's easy to see why Seek the Peak has grown to become the nation's premier hiking event. Grab your pack and join us: Mount Washington is calling! - See more at: http://www.seekthepeak.org

PLEASE HELP ME REACH MY GOAL
On July 19, 2014, I will climb 6,288-foot Mount Washington, New Hampshire as a participant in the 13th annual Seek the Peak hike-a-thon. As the largest annual fundraiser for the nonprofit Mount Washington Observatory, every dollar I raise will directly support the Observatory's mission of research and education on Mount Washington.
Since 1932, the member-supported Mount Washington Observatory has been observing and reporting on Mount Washington's infamous conditions from their mountaintop weather station, maintaining one of North America's longest continuous climate records.

The data they collect is utilized in forecasting models, weather reports, landmark climate research and a variety of educational outreach.

Please join me in supporting this legendary institution by making a donation towards my hike. All gifts are fully tax-deductible, and will help Mount Washington Observatory continue their important work in the Home of the World's Worst Weather.
