Join us on May 21, 2022, as we climb 8 miles on the iconic Ozark Trail, passing the cascading Mina Sauk waterfalls and ending at the highest point in Missouri, Taum Sauk Mountain. It will be a challenging hike with 1,545 ft of elevation gain on rocky terrain, but pushing our personal limits for Fisher House Foundation is worth it. 

Our Inspiration


We are honored to be climbing to raise money and awareness for Fisher House Foundation – an organization that has served over 400,000 families since its inception and is focused on supporting military and veteran families in a variety of ways, including providing comfort homes where military & veteran families can stay free of charge, while a loved one is in the hospital.

100% of donations will support Fisher House!
