Mickayla Hodgman, 19, and Corey Smith, 21, are more than the average climbing enthusiasts. Their climbing is a reflection of their relationship and their lifestyles.
But the long-term, long-distance couple does not only just breeze up walls in their free time. They also participate in an array of community charity events with St. Baldrick’s, a cancer awareness and charity program and One Million Bones, a genocide awareness program. Hodgman and Smith both raised $935 in pledge donations in March to shave their heads for cancer awareness at a Saint Baldrick’s event.
The two also participate in charity dodgeball tournaments.
Climbing is only one of their many hobbies, but it sums up their relationship perfectly. Climbing, they said, reflects their commitment, trust, strength and love for life.
