On January 1, 2012, a gunman drove into Mount Rainier National Park and murdered an on-duty law enforcement ranger. Ranger Margaret Anderson leaves behind a husband and 2 young children.
On June 21st, 2012, Climbing Ranger Nick Hall accidentally fell to his death while performing an on-mountain rescue of 4 injured climbers near the summit of Mount Rainier.
On August 13, 2012, a group of entrepreneurs, creatives and adventure-enthusiasts will attempt to summit Mount Rainier to raise funds for Margaret and Nick’s memorial funds. For 3 of the climbers, Ryan, Bradley and Jeff, this will mark their “first ascent”.
Michael Rowley, Founder of 14,4 Foundation, has built his foundation on a passion for helping those whom have been injured in the outdoors, or families who have lost loved ones to the outdoors. This climb marks the first fundraising effort by 14,4 Foundation to help a family who lost a loved one.
In an effort to create awareness and financial support for the Anderson and Hall families, we are raising a minimum of $1500 that will go towards their memorial funds setup through Mt. Rainier National Park. We are hoping to involve a lot of local people from the Rainier community, the Ranger community, guide services and outdoor enthusiasts. We believe that $1500 is an easy goal to achieve, and foresee several thousand dollars being raised for this cause.

For more info on Nick Hall, please visit HERE.
There are several ways you can help. Our number one goal is to raise $1500 that will be given entirely to the Anderson and Hall families. That is our first priority and main focus of this trip.
Before Ranger Nick Hall’s death, we had previously raised $1,550 for the Margaret Anderson Memorial Fund. Every dollar raised after June 21st will be split between the 2 ranger’s memorial funds.
Mount Rainier reaches 14,410 feet. We are looking for you to sponsor 10 cents per foot for as many feet as you like. Our goal is $1,500 to be sponsored, roughly 14,410 feet. Join with us in honoring and celebrating the life of a fallen ranger, and supporting the family she left behind.
Secondly, we have some overhead costs that are involved:
Climbing permits: $200 (donated)
Food and fuel: $250
Mountaineering gear rental: $600 (donated)
Logo’d apparel which will be worn on the mountain to show support for the cause: $400 (Sponsored by APPLE PHYSICAL THERAPY)
Camera gear which will be used to document the trip and tell the story: $300 (gear rentals donated by BORROW LENSES)
If you are interested in sponsoring any of these costs, your name and company information will be posted in the film credits, as well as all our online outlets. Please contact Jeff directly if you are interested in helping our cause. Info@jeffmarshstudios.com
