While she may not be the first to conquer the mountain, Leah will be no less excited to climb Mount Kilimanjaro this year.
I have decided I will take on this challenge to support Outward Bound Canada’s specialized charitable programs. The program that speaks most compellingly to me right now is the Women of Courage program, which gives women who have experienced physical, emotional and/or sexual abuse the opportunity to experience adventure – and healing – in the Canadian wilderness with other women who share a common history. My personal motivation to embark on this journey in support of Women of Courage are the amazing women in my life both past and present. I am truly blessed to be surrounded by such role models, along with support, love and ‘women power.’"
