Take a Hike

With us.

To support an unbelievable cause.

On June 25th, Team SWIRE will join a number of local teams that make up Team California to hike to the top of Mt. Baldy, 10,068 feet, the highest peak of the San Gabriels.

We’re part of an international Summit 4 Hope that is promoting awareness and raising funds for Heart for Africa’s Project Canaan in Swaziland.

The statistics in Swaziland are simply saddening and quite unbelievable:

  • 200,000 orphans in a country the size of New Jersey
  • 42% HIV/AIDS rate
  • 15,000 orphan headed households
  • Average life expectancy of 29 years old
  • In the year 2020, there will be zero adults if nothing is done

I urge and encourage you to visit Heart for Africa’s website and if you’d like to join us or support our hikers, please visit our Summit 4 Hope event page.

If you’re not in the LA area, there are hikes going on around the world:

  • Mt. Kilimanjaro (19,340’) in Moshi Tanzania, the tallest mountain in Africa
  • Mt. Jade (12,966’) the tallest mountain in Taiwan (also know as Mt. Yu)
  • Mt. Hope (3,727’) the highest point at Project Canaan
  • Mt. Elbert (14,433’) in Colorado, the second tallest mountain in the lower 48
  • Mt. San Antonio (aka Mt. Baldy) (10,068′) the highest point in Los Angeles County
  • Mt. Mauna Kea (13,796’) the tallest mountain in Hawaii
  • Mt. Brasstown Bald (4,784’) the tallest mountain in Georgia
  • Heart Mountain (7,005’) in Canmore, Alberta
