Denver Schoolteacher to Climb Summits of 50 States in 50 Days
Date:5/22/2008

e encouraged to include the challenge in their curricula so that entire classrooms can participate together as a team. The online challenge will continue through December.

Mountains and Molehills

These highpoints are an interesting collection of summits. The Delaware highpoint (448 feet) in Wilmington is located in the center of a road. Britton Hill (345 feet), the highpoint of Florida, is situated just 20 feet from a parking lot near Florala, Ala. The toughest, Alaska's Mount McKinley (Denali), starts the 50-day clock the minute Haugen tags the top.

Haugen will summit by any means during his 24,000-mile journey this summer, even if by car. Such is the nature of the variety of America's highpoints. Regardless of its height, each highpoint will allow Haugen to tell a different story involving flora and fauna, geography, fitness and the simple pleasures of being outdoors.

Haugen's goal is to finish on Hawaii's Mauna Kea, less than 50 days later, on approximately July 25. Ben Jones, from Lynnwood, Wash., set the current record of 50 days, 7 hours and 5 minutes in 2005.

Fighting Nature Deficit

For years, The Coleman Company, Inc. has been concerned about the growing number of children who spend more time indoors with electronic devices than they do exploring the outdoor world, coupled with the increasing rates of childhood obesity due to poor eating and exercise habits. "Nature deficit" is considered a threat to the health of American children. Studies have shown that exposure to nature and being active outdoors may be just the right antidote to an epidemic of obesity and many other problems kids face today.

Through this project, Coleman and Mike Haugen hope to encourage kids to discover the outdoors and remain physically active both at home and at school.

Accompanying Haugen on his adventure will be Zach Price, 30, an architect and climber from Seattle, and Lindsay Danner, a social work major residing in Denver. <
