To all of our donors, summit society, super volunteers, and key leaders, this event is exclusively for you. Please save the date of May 22 so that we can celebrate you for all you've done to make a difference in our community. It's going to be an "electric celebration," meaning we will be commemorating the official launch of Solar Power at the Seattle Program Center, made possible by the generosity of Peak Society Members Charlie and Carol Michel.

The evening will include catered dinner and drinks, an opportunity to check out our solar panels, a few words from Charlie Michel, and a very special guest - the "electric adventurer" Greg Hill.

Beginning in 2001, Greg Hill helped with the evolution of ski mountaineering when he won his first Randonnee race, since then it has been an endless string of firsts:  climbing and skiing 50,000 ft in 24 hours, plus first descents  in Canada, Chile, Norway, and Pakistan. This all earned him "25 Fittest Guys in the World" by Men's Fitness, plus one of the "Skiers of the Year 2011" in Skiing magazine, and a  "Top adventurers 2006" in National Geographic Adventure Magazine.

Lately, however, Greg has started looking at his personal impact on the earth. With the recent climate crises, from wildfires to hurricanes, he’s become aware of how the emissions from his air and car travel are negatively impacting the environment. Hill has since dedicated himself to seeking new ways to adventure that do not contribute to climate change. His first major change has been in selling his F-350 super diesel and buying the Chevrolet Bolt, a fully electric car. His current goal is to summit 100 peaks using only his electric car and human power.
