Two phenomenal milestones occurred during July 2019 for The Caroline Foundation;

1) The Alpine Challenge with 18 amazing  people who set out on July 4th to climb the Alpine summit of Pointe Burnaby, a 4.153-metre-high, snow covered peak near the Matterhorn above Zermatt in Switzerland. One team member (Karen Hodgins) summed up the experience by saying,

“Endurance, exhilarating, terrifying, exhausting, grueling, challenging, emotional, thankful, awe, compassion and kindness are just some of the words which come to mind when reflecting on our week in the Alps which culminated in the Alpine summit of Pointe Burnaby. No words can really explain the experience that was felt within. I am so thankful and grateful to all who supported me on this journey whether it was emotionally, financially or physically. To those who trained us and those who trained with us – where excuses weren’t accepted! It made us achieve what was planned for us – thank you. To the guides who had our safety in their hands – I am in awe. The memory of friends gone on and thoughts of those fighting the battle kept us struggling on.”
