Save One Life has frequently used adventure trips to help bring awareness to our cause. Our Executive Director, Chris Bombardier, climbed the Seven Summits for Save One Life and Board President and Founder, Laurie Kelley, has scaled Mt. Kilimanjaro with groups three times for Save One Life. We wanted to share these adventures with more people so we are bringing it closer to home!
Grand Canyon is one of the most iconic locations in the United States. Many people dream of seeing the canyon and walking along the rim, but fewer than 1% of visitors ever go into the canyon! Save One Life wants to provide this opportunity for people of any abilitiy level to achieve this bucket list item.
Anyone! This adventure is designed for people of all physical abilities with many different options of hikes available. Save One Life is utilizing the experience and expertise of our partner, iConquer, to help everyone interested in participating find their route to success. iConquer will guide participants through a ten week training program that will help them prepare for the hike that fits their skill level. If people want to be a guest/visitor and not hike, they can do that too!
Day 1 – May 20, 2020 - Arrive Phoenix
Day 2 – May 21, 2020 - Phoenix to Grand Canyon
Day 3 - May 22, 2020 - Celebration Hike
Day 4 - If Needed
Save One Life/iConquer - Grand Canyon is not about "man vs. nature!" It's about YOU doing something good for yourself while doing something GREAT for others!
Participants will be required to raise a minimum of $3,000 to partake in this adventure. This cost covers all your expenses except for your airfare to and from Phoenix. Each participant, or team of participants, will easily create (with help from Save One Life/iConquer) their own fundraising page to encourage family, friends and community members to support them. Save One Life will provide language and guidance so donors know that any money raised will be going to help people with bleeding disorders in developing countries.
Click the link below to register as a hiker or guest and you can also create a team. Follow the instructions on the website and start fundraising! Share the link to your page with your friends and family and the story about Save One Life. Participants have until January 15, 2020 to submit half of the $3,000, the remainder will be due March15. Then it's time to start training! The adventure awaits!
