What is your EVEREST?

6 Brave WeIsStrong Omaha Teammates are taking on their Mt. Everest. This team is intentionally challenging themselves to do something only a few conquer in climbing the vertical equivalent of Mt. Everest.

Aug 11, 2023 this team along with about 245 others will start their journey in Snow Basin, Utah at 6a.  Each ascent, they will climb 2310 ft over 2.3 miles, rinse and repeat 13 times for a total of 29,029 ft over 29.9 miles. This group will have 36 hours to complete the challenge.
