This September I join a couple dozen amazing women on overnight hike in the stunning White Mountains of New Hampshire. I am inviting you to join me on this get-crazy, why-not adventure of a lifetime. Surrounded by autumn at its most magnificent, the invitation includes sunrises, meals, encouragement, sunsets, laughs, deep breaths, moments of reflection and a night’s sleep in the “Lake of the Clouds” hut. Wild, isn’t it?
Before you dismiss or delete the idea, I have to share…
1) I am not a hiker, but life is too short to not get out and try something new. It’s time.
2) Exhilarating as it might seem, it isn’t even about us. Peaks for Prevention is a fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Fund. Every step we take will honor loved ones, our personal fight, or you can be arm in arm with your fighting-survivor best friend and all raising money towards breast cancer prevention.
3) Even if we haven’t met, this invitation stands. “Team Little Changes” is intimate and welcoming. Come by yourself or bring a friend.

Would you consider donating $25? I know a few ladies who might be sheepsish to raise funds and your donation might give them the courage to join a team – of course 100% goes to the Breast Cancer Fund.
