My name is Rachel and I’m fundraising for the BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver BC. This is going to be the second time that I will be "summiting for hope". I had such an amazing, life-changing experience doing it the first time in 2014, my daughter Ariana told me I was CRAZY. One day I hoped to share the experience with her and this year we will be climbing Machu Picchu TOGETHER!
I own a designer women’s wear boutique where I truly enjoy working with like-minded women to find pieces and styles that work for them. But Summits of Hope is a way for me to make a positive impact on my community and to teach my daughter about the importance of dreams, connection and giving back.
Committing to climb for this charitable cause truly helps me realize a greater purpose.
