Most of us will never find ourselves at the top of Mount Everest. But we can all imagine the months of training and preparation, the lists of gear and provisions, the challenge of days of climbing in thin air, carrying all those supplies on your back. And we can imagine how relieved and grateful we’d feel to have someone to walk with us, to guide us on the right trail, to help us carry the weight — someone who cares about our wellbeing and has travelled this route before.

For Threads of Life, 2022 showed over and over the value of sharing the weight among many. We saw family members help one another carry their burdens; volunteers walk along with us; partners and donors concerned and committed enough to join us on the trail and shoulder some of the weight as well.

Together, these companions smoothed the way for the organization and our members, ensuring those affected by tragedy have a community of support, and helping to change safety cultures to prevent tragedies in the future.

Over and over, Threads of Life’s family members tell us how much it means to find someone who knows this road and can help them carry the weight.
