Brittney Woodrum, a Kentucky native, is setting out on one big mission.

"It's kind of fitting that I should go and find some physical mountains to climb as we as a global community are kind of trying to come together," Woodrum said.

Everyone is trying to come together to tackle the mountain of probems COVID-19 has created.

"The pandemic knows no borders and it is affecting people all over the world," Woodrum said. "Particularly impacts the most vulnerable the worst. So humanitarian organizations are playing a key roll in being able to provide for these vulnerable populations and being able to keep them safe."

That's why Woodrum will be climbing all of Colorado's 14ers, that's mountains with peaks over 14,000 feet, to raise money for ShelterBox. It's an organization that provides, shelter, cooking tools, the necessities, for those who need it.

"The goal is to raise $1,400 per mountain, so a total of $82,000 by end of this incredible journey," Woodrum said. "All for ShelterBox, all for their current COVID-19 emergency relief of people."

Everyone needs shelter and a way to stay clean, especially when sheltering in place. Woodrum is ready to tackle those 58 mountains for the people who need it the most.

"It's going to be very challenging, but I'm really really excited for this opportunity," Woodrum said.
