“I can't think of a better way for our athletes to get involved for a greater good that actually changes the lives of young people,” said Mike Welch, national sales manager of Mammut USA. “The nature of athletes in our industry is so often about exploring remote areas for the personal challenge, which is impressive in itself. Widening the scope of why we explore the outdoors to a program that shares it with teens in challenging environments, and who might not otherwise be able, is something we are really proud to support.” Mammut also contributes to Big City Mountaineers by outfitting climbers for the Summit for Someone benefit climbs.

Thanks to Mammut, Rock & Ice Magazine and Pod Climber for making this raffle possible.

BCM is the largest non-profit in the country devoted to working exclusively with under-resourced teens by using the outdoors as a transformational element in their lives. BCM runs its recreational mentoring program in most major urban centers throughout the country, with its largest program areas in Denver and San Francisco. Learn more at www.bigcitymountaineers.org.
