Previewing the 17th Annual Climb For A Cause™/Smile Tree™ Pikes Peak Hiking Event


The 17th Annual Climb for a Cause (CFAC) is scheduled for September 12-15, 2014, at Pikes Peak near Colorado Springs, Colo. CFAC is a non-profit foundation that combines the breathtaking beauty of the mountains with the desire to make a positive difference in peoples’ lives. By working with CFAC's in-country partners, CFAC and Smile Tree have helped improve the lives of countless needy children and deserving adults throughout the world.

CFAC offers individuals and organizations the unique opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to "giving back," that is, share the fruits of their success with those far less fortunate. The Annual Hiking Event offers just such an opportunity. Past hikes have included The Grand Canyon, Wheeler Peak, and Zion National Park.

I recently sat down with CFAC's founder, Daniel "Danny" Bobrow, to talk about this year's climb at Pikes Peak as well as some of the outreaches that will be supported through the climb and CFAC. You can watch our video interview below, as well as view some exclusive video that Bobrow shot during his recent visit to Colorado Springs.
