#NuttyGoodAdventure women Georgina Miranda, Emma Walker, Elizabeth Williams, and Jessica Hamel train for climbing Pico de Orizaba, the highest peak in Mexico.
Ten years ago, Georgina Miranda couldn't even run a mile. One day, she read an article about atrocities in Congo that inspired her to do something.
So, like any normal super human, she decided to climb the highest peak on each continent to raise money for charity.
This March, Georgina and three other amazing women - Emma Walker, Jessica Hamel, and Elizabeth Williams - will tackle the highest peak in Mexico - Pico de Orizaba - a volcano reaching 18,491 feet.
They're totally nuts.
Not only will it be the highest that Emma, Jessica and Elizabeth have ever climbed, they are pushing their limits for an awesome cause: Big City Mountaineers.
Big City Mountaineers helps transform the lives of underserved youth around the country through outdoor adventure and wilderness education.
Elizabeth Williams is the program director for Big City Mountaineers, and says, “I’m climbing Orizaba because I believe in how important it is to get kids on wilderness adventures who might not otherwise have the opportunity. It really changes their perspective.”
Emma Walker is a freelance writer and adventurer, and helps as a guide for Big City Mountaineers.
Jessica Hamel is a freelance social media wizard and entrepreneur - founder of a delicious vegan coconut oil frosting brand called FROST’D - when she’s not training for 100 mile races.
And when Georgina Miranda isn’t chasing adventure, she’s a serious business woman and entrepreneur - founder of Altitude Seven - a website dedicated to helping women seek adventure on their own terms.
