5th Year Anniversary!

This summer will be the 5th year of The ALTITUDE Project. Wow - five summers of awesome trail runs, bible studies next to a pool, worship nights around bonfires and pancake tosses at breakfast!

Remember to drop Greg or Avery (altitude.project@gmail.com) a big congrats! Oh - and sign up for camp.

FloTrack Interviews Greg Jimmerson

It has been one amazing year for ALTITUDE Project Director, Greg Jimmerson. He's been coaching at Liberty University and overseeing the distance runners, including this year's NCAA Cross Country Champ!

(Greg looks a little nappy - his wife will have to do something about that for future interviews!)

Yay, We're a Non-Profit!

The ALTITUDE Project is now officially a 501(c)3 Non-Profit! We received our status from the IRS in November 2007. What does that mean? Well, it means that you can make a tax-deductible donation to The ALTITUDE Project. Great work Avery & Greg!

For those of you who were at The ALTITUDE Project in 2004 or 2005, you'll remember Coach Tolsma, head cross-country and track coach at Liberty University. Anyways, he has a really great book about how fully devote your running to Christ.
