About Peak Week

It’s that time of year again – time for our third annual Peak Week!  Last year we surpassed our goal of $5000 and we hope to do it again!

The Wellspring Foundation for Education believes that quality education is vital to seeing lasting change in a nation. In order to see this happen, Wellspring works in cooperation with the Rwandan government and has an amazing team of Rwandan staff who work with local school leaders, teachers, parents and students. And incredible change is taking place!

This is why we created Peak Week. We want to be a part of that change. We want to CLIMB FOR GOOD.

5 Days. 5 Hikes. $5000. That is our goal and we would love your support. You can donate by clicking here.
