SCI Mountain Challenge 2019
Rick Beaumont, Damon Hartley and Cameron Holmes recently competed in the Seaman Church Institute’s Mountain Climbing Challenge in Newry, Maine. The challenge included close to 30 miles of hiking and six miles of canoeing over a two-day period.
The Thomas Miller team came in 10th place on the first day, 11th on the second day and finished eleventh overall out of a total of 55 teams.
The team also raised $4,073 from generous donors including family, friends and of course, Thomas Miller colleagues. These funds go directly to the SCI and help benefit mariners through SCI’s important programs, including hospitality and transportation services, legal advocacy, on-board Chaplain visits, etc. A big Thank You to all those who supported!
