2018 Washburn Challenge: Sunday, July 8


To our participants, volunteers, and supporters of the 2018 Washburn Challenge: Thank you for another incredibly successful event weekend!

With your generous support, we have raised over $143,000 to date -- and we are still counting!

We couldn't have asked for more beautiful weather, more joyous company, or more enthusiastic supporters. This year was far and away our largest with 48 hikers on the mountain, including our five fabulous AMC guides. We are so humbled and thrilled to put on this event year after year, benefiting the Museum's Annual Giving program and celebrating the achievements of the Museum's Founding Director, Bradford Washburn.
