Climb For the Kids – The History

Climb For the Kids - The History

As the 5th Annual Climb For The Kids gets underway, we wanted to go back and take a look at the history, and how we have grown every year. 

The Climb For The Kids started in 2015 with Ryan Kelley watching Everest in his house and thinking “I can do that.”  He walked into The Home Loan Expert offices the next morning and told the assembled team that he was climbing a mountain, Mount Rainier, for charity, and he would pay for anyone who wanted to go up with him.

He got no responses.

Finally, a week later, April McCoy, COO of The Home Loan Expert, came to Ryan and asked him if he thought she could climb the mountain.  He immediately signed her up and they started training for the climb.

The climb that year was very difficult for two first timers, and they did not quite reach the summit, with Ryan getting within 700 feet.  However, it was a roaring success, because Ryan and April raised over $14,000 that year for Friends of Kids With Cancer.

The next year brought even bigger successes.  Ryan went back to Mt. Rainier solo and this time, managed to summit the mountain!  He had prepared and trained even harder, and was able to get to the top.  That year, Ryan again raised over $14,000 for 3 charities: Friends of Kids With Cancer, SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital, and Alec Ingram.

In 2017, Ryan was injured after completing the grueling Bataan Memorial Death March and was not able to climb that year.  However, Karolina Zavisuite stepped in and did a great job by running a marathon up Pike’s Peak in Colorado!  Karolina was one of the top finishers and was a fitting fill-in for Ryan while he recuperated.  The Climb again raised over $14,000, this time for four charities: Friends of Kids With Cancer, SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital, Alec Ingram, and Roman Tough.

Then last year, the Climb For The Kids BLEW UP.  Ryan brought a team to the Grand Tetons in Jackson Hole, Wyoming including last year’s participant Karolina, Jaidev Jyotis, and Lance McOlgen to summit the mountain with him.  They were able to climb to the top and raise over $50,000 for 5 charities: FightDMD. Alec Ingram, Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, Friends of Kids With Cancer, and SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. 

The Climb For The Kids has raised over $92,000 total in 4 years, and we are shooting for $100,000 this year, but we need your help!  So visit www.climbforthekids.com today to make your donation and learn more about the Climb.

Cotopaxi Facts – Climb For the Kids 2019

Cotopaxi Facts – Climb For the Kids 2019

The 2019 Climb For the Kids is shaping up to be the toughest one yet, with Cotopaxi looming as the biggest challenge that Ryan has faced so far.  Cotopaxi is one of the world’s tallest active volcanoes and summiting that beast will not be an easy task for our team.

Cotopaxi is what’s known as a stratovolcano, with a total elevation of 19,393 feet.  Cotopaxi was first summited way back in 1872 and has proven very popular with guides and climbers alike since then.  It is part of the Ecuadorian Andes mountains.  In addition to being one of the highest volcanoes in the world, it is also one of the most active.  Cotopaxi has erupted over 50 times since 1738.  There were violent eruptions in 1744, 1768, 1877, and 1904 that caused pyroclastic flows and destructive mudflows, also known as lahars. It has been dormant for more than 70 years, which is an unusually long period for Cotopaxi.

The Climb to the top of Cotopaxi is a 9-day journey.  There is a period of acclimation before the climb, where the climbers spend time at higher elevation to get their bodies and lungs ready for the climb.  This is crucial for preparation, because the higher elevation means less air, making physical exertion more difficult.  The preparation takes place in Quito, Ecuador’s capital.  As part of the famous “Avenue of the Volcanoes”, it’s surrounded by mountains.

Then, there are several hikes and short climbs to get used to moving in the atmosphere before the actual climb.

Summiting Cotopaxi will be a long, difficult, dangerous climb.  This is a volcano that experienced climbers have difficulty with and will present a unique challenge to the team.

2019 Climb For The Kids

Climb For The Kids 2019

We are thrilled to announce the 2019 Climb For The Kids!  This year, Ryan Kelley and Jamie Becker will be summiting Cotopaxi in Ecuador for the 5th annual climb.  This will be the longest and highest climb so far, and Ryan and Jamie are training intently for it.

As usual, the Climb For The Kids will benefit several charities.  The team has carefully selected the charities for the great work that they do, and we are proud to be affiliated with these amazing organizations and causes.

Friends of Kids with Cancer in St. Louis has been a great partner since the beginning of the Climb.  Friends of Kids with Cancer is devoted to enriching the daily lives of children undergoing treatment for, and survivors of, cancer and blood-related diseases. Providing care through the educational and recreational support needed as a result of the long hours of chemotherapy, illness and isolation. 

SSM Health Cardinal Glennon in St. Louis has been a charitable partner for nearly as long, and we have worked with them on several charitable endeavors over the years along with the Climb.  SSM Health Cardinal Glennon primarily serves children from eastern Missouri and southern Illinois, but also treats children across the United States and from countries around the world. They have been providing care for children regardless of ability to pay since 1956.

A new partner this year is Dell Children’s Hospital in Austin.  Dell Children’s Hospital is the only dedicated freestanding pediatric and Level 1 trauma center in Central Texas. We are a non-profit hospital that provides a dedicated multidisciplinary team with a family centered approach. Dell Children’s is committed to a single purpose: making your child feel like a kid again.

We have also included the Staunton State Park Track Chair Program – Founded By Friends of Staunton State Park.  Colorado Parks and Wildlife values the right of every visitor to experience our state’s natural beauty. To provide this opportunity to the disabled community, Staunton State Park offers Action Trackchairs®, which allow visitors with limited mobility to explore designated trails in the park.

Our final charity is Elizabeth Weidener and Crowns Fight Cancer.  Elizabeth Weidner is an experienced cancer fighter and a veteran public speaker. Elizabeth became inspired to become an advocate for childhood cancer awareness after winning the Junior Miss Crown in Summer 2017 at the Miss Effingham County Fair queen pageant. She was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in January 2016.

As you can see, we have a wide variety of charitable organizations that you can donate to this year. We are excited to bring the Climb For The Kids to our new partners and the familiar organizations that we have helped in the past.  We have set a goal of $100,000 for the Climb this year, and we want to blow past it.

So please, visit www.climbforthekids.com today to learn more about the Climb For The Kids, follow Ryan and Jamie’s training and efforts, and donate to our 2019 campaign.
