Leading up to, during, and following the summit bid on Denali, we will be inviting you to engage in activities that will connect you to the expedition. Keep an eye on this page for the many ways you will be able to join us.
TELL THE STORY.
BECOME A PARTNER.
We are in the process of soliciting sponsors for the expedition, partners to help with grassroots outreach efforts during and after the expedition, educational content providers for this website, and media partners who can help us spread the message far and wide. For more information on the project budget, read our fundraising brochure here. If your organization is interested supporting Expedition Denali or becoming a partner or sponsor, contact us.
GET ON THE WAITING LIST.
Individuals interested in filling open spots on the summit team (should one become available) must complete NOLS mountaineering courses in 2012, train with the team (see above), and strive to attend all team events.
SPONSOR PROJECT INSPIRATION.
Following the summit bid, team members will tour the U.S. to give inspirational presentations. If your organization is interested in sponsoring a presentation, contact us.
You’ll see a number of Team Denali members and supporters at NOLS posting to the blog as time goes on. Interested bloggers should feel free to submit blogs and blog ideas by contacting us.
TAKE YOUR OWN 10,000 STEPS.
The longest and most strenuous day on Denali will be the summit day, a five-mile round trip up and back to High Camp. Five miles is roughly equal to 10,000 steps. NOLS will partner with organizations to mobilize youth of color nationwide to go on their “10,000 steps to Denali” on the day the team attempts to summit. You, too, can get pedometers for your family, class, or neighborhood and join youth across the nation in hiking 10,000 steps in wild places to commemorate this historic event.
SPREAD THE WORD.
Sport an Expedition Denali t-shirt to help further the conversation. Proceeds from shirt sales will go toward the expedition and grassroots mobilization efforts of Expedition Denali.Offered in numerous colors and adult and youth sizes, these t-shirts let you be a part of making history and building a legacy.
