WHO ARE "BLUE MISSIONS" ?
✔ Hike 3-days across 27.6 miles of tropical and pine forests to the summit of Pico Duarte, at 10,128 ft. above sea level.
✔ Travel to a community that BLUE has worked with to overcome the water crisis and spend a few hours connecting with the locals.
By participating on our trek, volunteers helped connect at least 10 people with access to clean water by reaching the minimum fundraising commitment of $250. 100% of this fundraised amount goes directly to the field towards the construction of a water system in a rural community.
