Brittney Woodrum has raised more than $90,000 for Santa Barbara based "ShelterBox USA" through her mountain climbing efforts

In September, KCLU News reported on the story of a woman climbing mountains in Colorado as a fundraiser for a Santa Barbara based non-profit.

Brittney Woodrum was trying to become a “Fourteener,” one of a group of people who have climbed Colorado’s 14 major mountain peaks.

Now, despite COVID-19 and weather issues, Woodrum has reached the top of all the peaks while having raised more than $90,000 dollars and counting in pledges for ShelterBox USA.  The non-profit provides shelter and essential tools like lighting, and water filtration devices for people hit by disaster around the world.

Woodrum climbed the 14 peaks carrying one of the boxes on her back which ShelterBox uses to deliver supplies around the world.
