Mountain hike to help children

Hikers are being asked to raise funds for children in the Himalayas by taking to the Korean mountains. A charity hike is to be held to raise money for MountainChild’s ranch program in Kathmandu, Nepal.

The charity helps tackle a variety of issues facing children living in the Himalayan mountains, including rescuing them from the threat of human trafficking.

The MountainChild Get-High campaign is asking hikers to pay 25,000 won to take part in the hike up Seoul’s Cheonggye Mountain on Saturday, May 21. The hike will start at 9 a.m. To get there, take bus 4432 from exit 7 at Yangjae Station to Wonteogol. Email get-high@mountainchild.org ahead of time to register and get a free T-shirt. Participation fees should be paid to Kookmin bank (KB STAR) 271401-04-069361 (account holder: 마운틴차일드) before the event.
