After a summer of training hard in Washington's Cascade Range, British Columbia's Waddington Range, and Alaska's Chugach Range, the Expedition Denali team is poised to embark on their journey to Denali in June 2013. This film clip will give you a brief window into their training this past summer and their thoughts on the upcoming expedition. If you are interested in supporting the expedition, contact us today!

To inspire youth of color—and particularly African American youth—to get outside, get active, and become stewards of our wild places, the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) will run an expedition with African American participants who will attempt to summit Denali, the highest peak in North America, in June, 2013, the 100th anniversary of the first ascent of the peak. This journey will involve a group of role models in the African American outdoor community learning and using valuable leadership skills, including expedition behavior, communication, and tolerance for adversity and uncertainty, to work together toward achieving a common goal.

If you are a media outlet interested in telling the team's story via a documentary film, contact Jeanne O'Brien at NOLS today!
