Rohan Ray, Outdoor Leadership Club Program Coordinator for Full Circle of Lake County and his wife Anna established the fundraising program and have taken on an ambitious goal.

The couple’s plan is to ski all 14 peaks above 14,000 feet in the Sawatch range of Colorado in a single 14-day unsupported traverse, starting on (of course) 4/14/14! See their route HERE.

“We hope that those who find these mountains to be a place to rejuvenate, recreate, and push their own limits will consider supporting Full Circle to continue providing opportunities for the next generation in Leadville,” said Rohan Ray.

Full Circle activities are free for participants, and are entirely funded by grants and donations. This Leadville non-profit “provides opportunities, education and caring relationships to help Lake County become a place where children make healthy choices, families thrive and the community is united.”
