Heather Thomson has chosen to climb the mountain because it's the perfect metaphor for the challenges that women face in this society.
" I've chosen to climb a mountain because it's the perfect metaphor for the challenges that women face in this society. Women shouldn’t be judged by the size of their waist but by the size of their heart. I will be climbing with an amazing team of 17 women, from all walks of life, all shapes and sizes and a variety of ages. We will be sharing our journey to well being with the world, we are re-defining healthy! This adventure is going to challenge all of us to dig deep and ignite our inner warrior, and I can’t wait! Holla! Here are some of the ladies joining me on this epic adventure," says Heather Thomson.
The training for the climb began earlier this summer at the No Barrier Summit in Colorado.
