In just a few weeks Trevor Stuart, long-time Berg Adventures climber and philanthropist will be taking on an impressive challenge: climbing Aconcagua in support of YWCA Lethbridge District. Trevor’s campaign “Elevating lives, one peak at a time” is his effort to raise at least $250,000 for YWCA Harbour House and to raise awareness about family violence issues.
Trevor’s first climb of this campaign will be on the BAI Aconcagua expedition from January 22 – February 11. A climb to 22,841ft/6,962m will be a great challenge for this inspirational fundraiser.
Trevor has always been passionate about supporting those affected by domestic violence. “As a child growing up I didn’t know these resources were available. There is a bigger need to help families like I was raised in. There are more and more women and children coming to the YWCA every year, fleeing domestic violence. They need more funding to accommodate that”.
After his attempt on Aconcagua this next month Trevor will return to South America with BAI in June, to Bolivia to climb four impressive peaks. But his ultimate goal, which he has begun planning with BAI, Mount Everest in March 2016.
Donations can be made through the YWCA Lethbridge District website at: www.ywcalethbridge.org. The link will be under the tab called EVENTS on the website.
