  • Climb Every Day That's my plan.

    Geoff Chatas,
    Y P 4 H Champion

    In June 2012, I weighed 240 pounds and as a high school graduation present for my daughter, we decided to hike from the south rim of the Grand Canyon to the Colorado River and back to the rim to celebrate her accomplishments. The hike, which took us six and a half hours five years ago, took me thirteen and a half hours this time, and I needed help from my daughter to finish the hike. See all Champions

  • Cycle Every Day That's my plan.

    Yvette Mitchell,
    Y P 4 H Champion

    My story begins with me growing up in the hills of West Virginia. I did not grow up learning how to eat healthy. I remember almost every meal we had involved some type of fried meat, homemade bread, gravy or potatoes, and when we did have vegetables they were cooked with lots of fatty meat for seasoning.
