Lisa Simmons ties her passion for hiking and mountain climbing to fundraising for BlazeSports, an adaptive sports program for children and veterans with physical disabilities. Simmons, co-founder and president of Beacon Management Services, has raised $35,000 for the nonprofit through, among other feats, her Grand Canyon Rim to Rim hike and her 2019 Mt. Kilimanjaro summit in 2019. With a goal to hike all the Seven Summits (the highest mountains on each continent), Simmons’ next trip is Mt. Elbrus in Russia this August.
