Annette's Climb
Posted 4/1/2012 12:46:00 PM

Spring is here, the weather is getting warmer. This is also the time 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, Annette's Climb. It's a climb to Mount Washington's Tuckerman Ravine and honors the memory of Annette Soares, who lost her life at the age of 39, a victim of domestic violence. The climb, held on April 28th this year, is symbolic of the struggle to break the cycle of domestic violence

Annette's Climb has taken place each spring to raise money for HAWC, WIT (women in transition) and other programs for women that have been physically abused. Since 2002, this event has supported HAWC (Healing Abuse, Working for Change) and in recent years North Shore Community College’s 'Women in Transition’ program. These programs help to provide support to victims, legal advocacy, services to children and community wide education as well easing the transition to college, career, and life changing possibilities.

So whether you're a hiker, 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 28th. For more information on how to participate in Annette’s Climb, sponsor a hiker or just simply make a donation, log on to annette’s climb dot org. You can also find them on Facebook.
