Big City Mountaineers ~ Help at-risk Youth Reach Their Potential!


Blake Smith, a local resident of Fairfax County, Virginia, is doing just that! He has signed up to hike Mt. Rainier this August in efforts to help at-risk youth climb to their potential, too. Blake will be hiking the highest glaciated volcanic peak to raise money for Big City Mountaineers, a non-profit that supports the urban youth in under-resourced areas.  The program hopes to enforce critical life skills by focusing on improving integrity, self-esteem, responsibility, decision-making abilities and communication skills. 






Statistics about Teens Supported by the Program:

  • 83% are from families living below the poverty line
  • 71% are from single parent or guardian-led households
  • 80% have parents with no more than a high school education
  • 62% have never traveled beyond their county of residence

Ask Gina & Company is a proud supporter of local community and worldwide charities. We've done our part, now we are asking you for some support too. The young men and women are our future and for them to succeed, they need our help. Help guide these teens to a better way of life by learning critical life skills. Click to Donate and Learn more about Blake Smith and the Big City Mountaineers Program
