In the days leading up to September 5th, 2020 Janette Heung and her climbing partners ascended and summited Pingora Peak, one of the tallest pinnacles (reaching an 11,000 ft elevation) that forms the Cirque of Towers of the Wind River Range in Wyoming. Tragically, it was in the descent down the mountain that led to her passing; and while we mourn the loss of life, her spirit and dedication to nature’s beauty, adventure and community will always be remembered.
We have established the Janette Heung Memorial Fund to raise funds to support one of the non-profit organizations that was the most dear to her, The Nature Conservancy, where she served as a Council Advisory Member for over 6 years. The family would like to accept donations on her behalf that will be donated directly to the non-profit. Please choose to donate to this cause in-lieu of flowers for her memorial.
