In an effort to raise money and raise awareness of the mental health challenges facing at-risk youth, and the resources to help them through Sky’s The Limit Fund, the pair are set to climb 29,029 feet – the elevation of Mt. Everest – on their bikes on Saturday, June 27, all without leaving the confines of Camino Alto.
“There is a huge issue with anxiety and depression and suicidal ideation,” Webb said the Bay Area’s Alice Sarah & Vinnie Morning Show. “Sky’s the Limit fund has been there to provide financial resources to get into wilderness treatment where kids are taken out with therapists day and night to really address these issues.”
Webb says it will likely take approximately 240 miles of riding over 20 hours on a 2.5-mile loop.
“We’re going to up and down this hill until we either go mad or finish,” Webb said.
