Mt. Rainier is a beautiful mountain proudly standing tall at 14,411 ft. in the Pacific Northwest. To me, climbing is a beautiful symbol for growth, strength, and determination.
Climb for Empowerment is dedicated to help empower survivors of Domestic Violence and Abuse. My dream is to show the world, if I can make a new life, so can you, one step at a time. I know how hard it is to rebuild from scratch. It takes a lot of courage to start over, learn how to live again and grow through the pain. This climb is a symbol of that growth.
