Unbeknownst to me, I was chosen as 5280’s Top Humanitarian in their upcoming July Issue for my work with Mountain2Mountain. A surprise and an honor to be recognized as the editor’s pick for this. I have worked hard Mountain2Mountain has worked hard for the last 6 years to fight for the rights of women and girls. The past six months has seen some amazing recognition nationally by National Geographic Adventure and locally with Denver’s 5280 Top of the Town on their 20th Anniversary. It means a lot to see the efforts and sacrifices I’ve made recognized, but my hope is that by showcasing the work I do in front of new audiences, it may help rally the masses, and inspire others to ‘be the change’ they wish to see in the world.
