Marmot's Lead Now Tour - Stop 9 - Chile
Chile marks the 9th and final stop of Marmot's Lead Now Tour (www.leadnowtour.org/), a global tour to inspire people through rock climbing and raise $10,000 a month for eleven different non-profit organizations.
While in Chile, the Lead Now team explores cliffs just outside the city of Santiago while working with local non profit VE Global. In between ascents of technical routes at El Arrayán, Paige introduces a group of young girls supported by VE Global to climbing. While learning about the challenging histories these girls have faced, Paige reflects on the past 9 months of the Lead Now Tour, recognizing that each of us can work together to support one another's ambitions.
VE Global (www.ve-global.org/) fosters the development of children at social risk in Santiago by empowering volunteers to serve as positive role models, educators and advocates of social justice.
