Fitzgerald joins 6,473 Who've Everested

Everesting is an activity in which cyclists ascend and descend a given hill multiple times, in order to have cumulatively climbed 8848 meters, or 29,029 feet (the height of Mt. Everest). Since 1894 there have been about 6,000 recorded completions of this attempt by cyclists. Famous persons who've achieved this goal are Gregory Mallory (grandson of the climber), Jens "Shut Up Legs" Voigt, Richie Porte, and Phil Gaimon (professional cyclists). Congratulations to our Colin Fitzgerald who challenged himself this past weekend at the Smith Gap of the Appalachian Trail, near Kunklestown, PA. When Colin isn't going uphill, he works for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in constituent outreach in the House of Representatives.
