The 2017 efforts of this small but passionate and powerful group raised over $765,000 that were distributed in grants to beneficiaries. It’s often difficult to see any impact on the world from our individual efforts. I support Climate Ride because my and my donors’ efforts don’t disappear into the ether. When I return to Glacier NP in the coming years and see solar panels at Apgar VC, I will take pride in that. And I will be thankful and proud of all of you that helped.
Going on the Glacier Climate Hike in Montana was a world-class guided adventure and so much more. The highlight for me was participating with the wonderful speakers, fellow hikers, and guides – everyone made this not just a few days to see the beautiful glacial valleys, but also hear about and discuss so many diverse ways to understand and improve our environment. Inspiring, educational, and hopeful!
