Top of the World JaxPAL and 29029 Everesting Challenge

A t the end of this month, I will be climbing Mt. Everest. Sort of. Technically, I will be hiking up Snowbasin in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. But my goal is to hike up the mountain 13 times, covering 29,029 feet, approximately 5.5 miles — the equivalent of climbing Everest. This isn’t just some wild idea I had one night. Four months ago, I signed up for the “29029 Everesting Challenge,” an epic endurance challenge that’s hosted throughout the country only a couple times a year. This is a professional event founded by Jesse Itzler, philanthropist, entrepreneur, and current owner of the Atlanta Hawks. Itzler is the author of “Living With a SEAL: 31 Days Training With the Toughest Man on the Planet,” a book that chronicles Itzler’s time living with David Goggins, a retired Navy SEAL. 29029 Everesting embodies that level of physical intensity. I haven’t done anything more athletically challenging than a 5K run since my football days, which is why I decided to participate in this challenge. I wanted to get outside of my comfort zone, both physically and mentally.

there are no prizes at the finish line for first place or medals to proudly display in a showcase. You’re really only competing against yourself. I have 36 hours to complete 13 laps up Snowbasin, and I’m determined to succeed. In addition to putting myself under extreme testing, preparing myself to climb the height of Mt. Everest, we have also decided to partner with JaxPAL, turning my insane climb into a fundraiser. I encourage you to help support the wonderful organization of JaxPAL. With your help, funds will directly support underprivileged kids in our community. I will personally match all donations. Wolf Retirement Navigation has been a proud sponsor of JaxPAL for many years. We love what they do, and we want to give back to our community, resulting in stronger and better neighborhoods throughout the Greater Jacksonville area. You, too, can support JaxPAL by sponsoring my climb. For complete details, please visit WolfRetirement. com/everest . It’s a little extra motivation to keep me climbing up the mountain!

I’ve been training hard for months. The 29029 Everesting Challenge includes a training program to help participants prepare physically and mentally for this daunting task. I’ve lost quite a bit of weight and feel healthier than I have in a long time. Will that be enough to get me up the mountain 13 times? Who knows. Physical fitness is only half the equation. From what I’ve heard, the mental part of the climb is even harder than the athletic demands. This is a challenge of endurance where the biggest obstacle is yourself. It’s really designed to show a person what he or she is made of. This is the physical jolt I’ve been looking for, and I won’t be backing down. I’m excited to make it to the top. -Adam Wolf, CPA, CFP ® Annuity guarantees rely on the financial strength and claims-paying ability of the issuing insurer.
