While the rest of us were prepping for our Thanksgiving feasts, cooking, indulging and watching football, CENTURY 21 CEO Rick Davidson and the Climb for Kids team were packing for Mexico.
Taking time away from their families to donate to a worthy cause, the team flew to Mexico City on Friday to climb two volcanoes in support of our philanthropic partner, Easter Seals.
Saturday morning the team held their first group meeting to review their itinerary and answer any remaining questions about the climb. They spent two days in Mexico City (elevation of 7,200 feet) to begin the acclimatization process.
That afternoon the Climb team toured the pyramids of the Teotiauachan, one of the first and most important civilizations. The Teotiauachan lived in Mexico City from 200 BC until 650 AD (pictured below).
Yesterday, following a visit to the Museum of Anthropology, the team traveled to the trailhead at Iztaccihuatl (17,160 foot peak) where they camped out and began their ascent to high camp this morning.
Rick has reported to us that, “The team is all in good health and good spirits and excited to start the climb!”
