Climbing for The Freedom of Others

Women Scale Peaks Around the Globe to Assist At-Risk Women and Children

January 2014

Climbing for the Freedom of Others

There were 44 women in July 2013 atop Mount Everest. And there will be 144 women this July on peaks in Colorado. These are women who convene from different homes around the globe, with a variety of backgrounds and stories. Few have ever climbed a mountain before. But they climb The Freedom Climb as a symbolic gesture for the women and children they wish to reach, assist and help gain freedom from modern slavery and oppression. Raising awareness and funds is achieved through these annual climbs.

A team of Optivest employees will participate in the Colorado climb, July 12-18, 2014. Each member will summit seven mountains over 14,000 feet in elevation in just 4 days. The peaks include Mt. Elbert, Mt. Democrat, Mt. Lincoln, Mt. Bross, Torrey’s Peak, Grays Peak and Quandary Peak.

The Freedom Climb is a project of Operation Mobilization (OM). It supports OM projects focused on at-risk women and children, specifically with those who are exploited, enslaved, oppressed and trafficked.
