Annette's Climb
Posted 4/4/2011 11:20:00 AM

When the weather gets warmer, the charitable walks, runs and rides begin, benefiting many worthy causes. It feels so good to participate, knowing we can make a difference in the lives of so many. Let me offer this one, it's a climb to Mount Washington's Tuckerman Ravine. It takes place each spring to raise money for HAWC, WIT (women in transition) and other programs for women that have been physically abused.  It's called Annette's Climb, in remembrance of Annette Soares, who lost her life at the age of 39, a victim of domestic violence. The climb, which will be held on April 30th this year, is symbolic of the struggle to break the cycle of domestic violence So if you're a hiker, you're in awe of the beautiful landscape of New Hampshire's White Mountains, or you simply would like to show your support for the programs that help those who are victims of violence in the home, join Annette's Climb on April 30th. Here is a link to the website for more information about it:  http://home.comcast.net/~annettesclimb/
