With a 42 percent HIV and AIDS rate and 200,000 orphans living in the country, the African nation of Swaziland is a country wracked with seemingly insurmountable conflict. But volunteers from all over the world are raising money to assist the country by hiking one mountain at a time.
A group of local hikers ranging in varying skill levels is set to summit the 10,068 ft. Mt. San Antonio, better known as Mt. Baldy, on June 30 in an effort to bring much-needed aid to the impoverished nation of Swaziland. The group is made up of local organizations, including Glenkirk Church, Glendora Ridgerunners, and Glendora business owners.
The California team is part of Summit 4 Hope, a fundraising effort made up of teams from all over the world hiking some of the world’s tallest peaks from Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania to Mt. Jade in Taiwan.
