First it started out as a curiosity. Would it be possible to trek back-country from the lowest point in the Lower 48 (Death Valley) to the highest point (Mt. Whitney)? This trek covers a distance of close to 150 miles through harsh landscape with a temperature range starting over 100 degrees and ending below freezing. The curiosity became reality and that reality has translated to half-a-dozen treks.
Now this curiosity has now been replaced with a passion to use this trek to reach young men whose mindset limits them from reaching their God-given potential. We have seen young men changed through experiencing the Low to High – through experiencing what can be achieved when you set a goal, train for the goal and then remain focused on achieving the goal one step at a time for 150 miles.
We are preparing for another Low to High this coming fall (Sept 16-29, 2016) and have slots for boys who could benefit from this experience. We will have Christian adult men on the trip who have completed the Low to High and who have a passion for speaking into the lives of young men.

If you have a boy who meets the qualifications listed below and would benefit from this trip, contact me, Joey Turman, at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be happy to give you more information, including experience of the Low to High team. We have scholarships available to assist in making this trip a reality if finances are a concern.
- Minimum age 14
- Willing to train in advance (we have men who will assist in this)
- Need to be willing to commit to the trek by June 1
The Low to High team is excited for this upcoming adventure and ministry experience - taking boys where few have been, and where they can experience God’s amazing creation in full.
