Join us for Nancy Sporborg and Pat Piper's one-hour commentary of movies and photographs from their more than 1,000 mile hike to the tops of over 170 mountains through all four seasons. They are both over-fifty women, both non-hikers, who decided to climb the 67 mountains in New England over 4,000 feet, and did. But the presentation is not about the hike; it is an inspirational and motivational program about pushing ourselves outside of our comfort zone, overcoming our fears, finding our passions and living our lives to the fullest. Sporborg and Piper translate their experiences into a universal message for people of all ages and interests. Everyone has a personal mountain to climb.

Their book, It's Not About the Hike, will be available for purchase and autograph.
