RedPeak Supports “Climb for Sudan”

Climb with RedPeak to support the “Climb for Sudan” event July 2nd – September 9th!

Two mountain climbers, Joe Rogers and Nick Spivey who were inspired by the “Lost Boys” of Sudan thousand-mile journey across three countries, will climb Colorado’s highest peaks, the 14ers, as a dedication to the former “Lost Boys” and the people of Sudan.

Who are the Lost Boys of Sudan?

The Lost Boys of Sudan are more than 20,000 boys who were displaced and/or orphaned during the Second Sudanese Civil War (1983–2005), about 2.5 million were killed and millions were displaced in refugee camps.

The need:

The twenty-year civil war between Northern and Southern Sudan demolished the existing educational system in the South. Now that the war has finally ended, South Sudan recently celebrated their Independence Day July 9th, 2011!  As the newest nation on Earth, a rebuilding of infrastructure and education will be vital to ensure that the country survives.
