Everesting Challenge to raise funds for the SafeHouse Center in Ann Arbor
ANN ARBOR – To raise awareness of sexual assault and raise funds for the SafeHouse Center, three cyclists will repeatedly ride up a hill in Ann Arbor on Saturday until they scale Mount Everest.
That’s about 300 trips up the hill.
The cyclists include the SafeHouse Center manager Barbara Niess-May, as well as board members Bill Holmes and John Huber.
“Surviving sexual assault is like climbing a mountain,” the SafeHouse Center wrote in a press release. “It takes courage, resilience, support and trust in yourself. There are often obstacles on the way to healing. The SafeHouse Center prides itself on providing survivors with accommodations, programs, and services, all of which are 100% free and confidential. “
The non-profit organization is currently accepting donations for the challenge.
$ 75 donors will receive a keychain, $ 150 donors will receive a water bottle, and $ 300 donors will receive a custom jersey designed for the event.
