Donate $10 to S2S to help us reach the summit!

November 20, 2012

On December 10th, a team of injured veterans and active duty service members will attempt to summit Mt. Cotopaxi, the second highest peak in Ecuador (elevation 19,347 feet). This will be the culmination of their yearlong journey with Soldiers to Summits, where we use mountains as metaphor and training ground to help veterans harness adversities and step up to lead and serve others.  Follow their journey on our day-by-day trip blog!

By the time they reach the summit in 21 days, our goal is to have raised $19,347 (the same amount as the elevation of Mt. Cotopaxi) to support next year’s Soldiers to Summits team.
