Next Friday October 12th I'm participating in Outward Bound California's annual high-rise fundraising event! I'll be rappelling off the 46th floor of the Hilton San Francisco Union Square! You might call that crazy but I wouldn't be doing this if it wasn't for a good cause.

I participated in a 3 week Outward Bound in the high Sierra's when I was 15. I volunteered to go because I had a strong desire to learn mountaineering skills. I did learn those skills; but what I got out of the experience was significantly more.

Outward Bound had a profound influence on the trajectory of my life. Looking back today I still can feel it's influence. And I've witnessed the same for friends, family, and other participants I've met over the years. Again and again I've seen it change lives for the better. The wilderness is an amazing classroom and Outward Bound is an incredible organization.

Any amount you can donate will help young people from lower-income communities get outside to challenge themselves and discover that there is more in them than they realize.

Outward Bound California is an educational nonprofit whose mission is to change lives through challenge and discovery. Through experiential education programs in both wilderness and urban settings, Outward Bound helps people discover strength of character, an ability to lead, and a desire to serve. Outward Bound California targets low-income, traditionally excluded populations from the outdoors industry by providing two in three of their students with a full or partial scholarship to participate in our programs. For more information, you may visit obca.org.

Please join me by showing your support today!

Thank you,

Chris
