Who We Are

We are climbers, hikers, bikers and outdoor enthusiasts in and around the Boston area who believe in the power of adventure to change life for the better. We’ve experienced firsthand the emotional surge after completing a hard climb, the thrill of reaching the top of tall mountains and the boost that comes from conquering one’s fears and mental limitations.

As a result, we understand the power of these experiences to build confidence and positively affect the life of a child. Through the UP Foundation, we want to share our excitement for these activities with youth from all over New England, and help others find their true strength.
