In less than a week, Paige Claassen and Jon Glassberg are heading out on the trip of a lifetime. Their year long voyage around the world is called the Lead Now Tour, sponsored by Marmot and Fitness Magazine and it begins in South Africa and will visit six of the seven continents. The Lead Now Tour is designed to do ONE thing, raise money for non-profits around the world through Crowdrise, an online fundraising tool that will help connect this project to non-profits around the world. Their goal of raising $120,000 is only going to be made possible with your help and we are asking everyone to please share this project so that our non-profit partners can benefit from the exposure!
Paige will be attempting a new climbing challenge in each location the team visits over the next twelve months, with hopes of raising awareness and compelling climbers, adventurers, and travelers to get active and show support through donation. If you create a fundraising team on the Lead Now Crowdrise page and raise over $100 for a single month, you will be entered to win a Marmot tent and swag bag as well as getting that warm fuzzy feeling, knowing that you directly helped a great cause. The Lead Now team will be working directly with these non-profits around the world to make sure that the most good comes of this project.
Louder Than Eleven will be producing a tour recap each month of the trip that will be featured on Fitness Magazine’s website. Follow along and help spread the word!
