Liz Rose Seventh Summit: Kosciuszko
October 25, 2017
Planned Summit Date: Nov. 4, 2017 (Nov. 3 PST) Estimated Time: 5 Hours
For my last climb, I’ll also be bringing a Canuck Place flag signed by some of the kids I’ve met there with me. It’ll be like I’m taking a part of them with me, and they can inspire me as I climb.
Mt. Kosciuszko should be a relatively easy climb, taking about five hours. It’s going to be really special, because friends and family will be joining me for this climb. I’m excited to be able to share that moment of completing the seven summit with them.
I’ve learned a lot on my climbs, and I think I’ve grown as a person, and not just as a climber. I’ve learned a lot about myself, and my own mental strength. I’ve learned how to push myself, and be totally in the zone, putting one foot in front of the other. You can’t let negative thoughts in, you just need to persevere. I’ve learned that if you want something, you need to take action, put your heart into it, and just go do it.
My heart has grown as well. I’ve met so many wonderful people, and with each summit my passion for climbing has only grown.
I’ve relished the challenge of each climb. I enjoy suffering as I strive to reach my goal and then coming home to celebrate with my family.
I’m so honoured to be able to fundraise for Canuck Place as part of my final climb. Growing up, my parents always taught me about helping others and giving back to the community.
They’ve been involved with Canuck Place for years, and I’ve been able to join them at some events and see for myself the difference Canuck Place makes for these families.
All donations, up to $100,000 made to Liz Rose’s Seventh Summit fundraiser will be matched by The Rose Family Foundation and Friends. Donate now.
