This is a cool project FitClimb recommends others check out and contribute to:
12 mountains. 30 days. This summer a team of six college students will be climbing 12 Cascade volcanoes and making a full length documentary on both their journey and the effects of climate change on these mountains and their shrinking glaciers. While challenging themselves physically and mentally for this journey, the team also hopes to spread awareness of climate change and encourage others to seek out their own adventures in nature, big or small.
Starting June 15, the team will leave Seattle and cross through Washington, Oregon and into California to climb peaks which include Mt. Rainier, Mt. Hood, and Mt. Shasta. Among this team of climbers are aspiring filmmakers, photographers and sound technicians who are looking to create an unforgettable storytelling experience within this documentary. After returning from the journey, the team will be working hard for the next few months to produce a professional full length film.
On top of physically training the team is also raising money to ensure that they can create a quality documentary. Currently they are offering the opportunity to pre-order still photographs, copies of the documentary, bonus material, and other items in exchange for donations.
