2 Girls. 6 Peaks. 33 Miles. 1 Day. Two girls, 10 and 12 years old, are going to attempt a world's record for climbing 6 mountains in the Adirondacks in less than 24 hours to raise money for the Golisano Children's Hospital.

2 Girls.

6 Peaks.

33 Miles.

1 Day.

Two girls, 10 and 12 years old, are going to attempt a world's record for climbing 6 mountains in the Adirondacks in less than 24 hours to raise money for the Golisano Children's Hospital.

If they're successful, the girls will be the first people under 18 years of age to complete what's known as the Saranac Ultra 6 challenge. In combination, the six peaks around Saranac Lake in New York will demand these two girls hike 33 miles (think 1.3 marathons), and ascend 8,400 vertical feet. That's the equivalent of climbing up and down the Empire State Building 6 times, or scaling 50% of the way up Mount Everest.

We're asking for donations for the attempt specifically, because if these girls are going on 20 hours of gruelling climbing, we don't want them to put themselves in danger because they're afraid of letting everyone down. They're great climbers with great hearts, and we're proud of them already.

You can follow their hikes at hike.sherwoodnet.com.

Please help these kids, so they can help others!
