Learn About the African-American Mountaineers That Made History This Summer: REI Atlanta to Host Expedition Denali Presentation Oct. 16
October 08, 2013
Hey Atlanta! REI Atlanta has a great event coming up and we want to share with you! On Wednesday, October 16 at 6:30pm REI Atlanta will host a presentation on Expedition Denali. If you haven't heard of Expedition Denali, you're in for a treat!
The presentation is about an expedition team of African-American mountaineers, who made history this summer with their attempt to be the first such team to summit Denali, the highest peak in North America. The Expedition Denali team includes not only the mountaineers who will be making the summit bid in 2013, but individuals who are passionate about diversity in the outdoors and want to support this endeavor by fundraising, blogging, writing, and spreading the word to their own networks. Team Denali members are role models in their own right and include diversity champions, change leaders in the youth and outdoors movement, educational reformers, writers, photographers, business leaders, and mountaineers who have made historical ascents.
It's definitely an event you WON'T want to miss! For more information about the event visit: http://www.rei.com/event/53204/session/78881
