Summit for Danny Community Hike
Hikers and community volunteers will gather at Elings Park on Sunday, October 30th, for the annual Summit for Danny Community Climb, back this year for the first time since COVID-19.
Summit for Danny is spearheaded by business leader Bob Bryant, who lost his son Danny to substance abuse in 1995. Determined to turn his tragedy into hope for others, Bryant teamed up with the Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse to develop a youth treatment center for Santa Barbara.
Money raised from the community climb provides scholarship funds for substance abuse treatment at the Daniel Bryant Youth & Family Center. Since the center opened in 2001, more than 7,000 teens and their family members have received treatment for drug and alcohol abuse.
Summit for Danny participants can choose from two trail options including a three-mile hike, and a moderate five-mile hike. All hikes will begin at Godric Grove at Elings Park and dogs are welcome. Following the climb, hikers and their friends and families are invited to enjoy a barbecue, an awards presentation and live entertainment.
Everyone who joins us on the 30th is welcome to return to Elings Park between October 31st and November 15th to hike at no additional cost. Take the 2021 challenge and win prizes for most spirited hiker, best canine companion, best group shot and more.
Proof of vaccine or negative COVID test required.
Title sponsor of this year’s Summit for Danny is Montecito Bank & Trust.
