Where do I sign up for the Seek the Peak fundraiser for the Mount Washington Observatory?
I could handle the media interview at the top:
… Hikers came in droves to support the non-profit Mount Washington Observatory during Saturdayâ€™s annual Seek the Peak hike-a-thon, making the 2008 edition the most successful event in its eight-year history. 250 hikers from as far away as Texas, Colorado, Florida and the Carolinas, ventured to the summit of the tallest peak in New England, raising a total of $97,000 for the Observatory. That sum fell just short of the eventâ€™s ambitious $100,000 goal, but surpassed the eventâ€™s 2007 fundraising totals by more than $33,000 and more than doubled the 2006 effort.
Despite its reputation for being home to some of the most extreme conditions on Earth, Mount Washington was rather tame on Saturday, with sunny skies and pleasant hiking conditions. This was a welcome sight, after a weekâ€™s worth of torrential downpours and strong thunderstorms in the area.
Presented by Subaru and L.L.Bean, Seek the Peak is Mount Washington Observatory’s largest annual fundraiser. All proceeds from the event benefit the 76-year old organizationâ€™s ongoing efforts in weather observation, education and research. The cumulative total that this specific event has raised over its eight year history is now over $377,000. …
