I have a complex goal, but a simple mission. As someone who has suffered from Legge Calve Perthes Disease as a child, I want to honor those who are currently going through the same journey. As an athlete who enjoys endurance and mountain activities, I take a prayer flag with me to the summits of ice climbs, rock climbs, or mountains in honor of these children. Parts of the flag are sent directly to the child, along with a letter, while photos and stories of the climb are shared so that the child and their loved ones can follow along. This service is completely free, and you can register your child by following the link. I hope that your child is doing well, despite the challenges they may be facing. With your love, compassion, and support, they will emerge from this experience even stronger than before.

“To endure is to suffer with patience. Endurance is the fact or power of enduring an unpleasant or difficult process or situation without giving way.” -Webster Dictionary
“Through endurance, we conquer” -Ernest Shackleton
