I was also thinking that at some point down the road, we, as a community, might want to consider organizing an annual memorial climb. We could consider charging a small participation fee and use the funds generated to fund scholarship(s) for community members to use for mountaineering training (ex: avy level 1 class, first aid/cpr) or to hire instructors to teach group classes. I don't want to step on anyone's toes if something's already in the works.
Anna, I spoke with Nona Gladbach today and she would LOVE to have a Steve Gladbach Memorial Fund for mountaineering training.
I am in the process of setting up the fund with their credit union. Details coming soon.
If you would like to "get the ball rolling" for some sort of annual (spring, fall or winter) gathering, as well as the "group class(es)" please take it and run as there will be a fund with funds soon.
