Crossman completes 365 summits of Pico Mountain in 362 days for Vermont kids – PICOSUMMIT365

PicoSummit365 is an incredible awareness and fundraising campaign started by Randy Crossman, the 63-year-old Director of Facilities at Castleton University and 7th-generation Vermonter, of Rutland in the summer of 2021. Randy committed to summiting Pico Mountain 365 times in 365 days to raise awareness and funding for Building Bright Futures. Randy Crossman, the 63-year-old Director of Facilities at Castleton University and 7th-generation Vermonter, completed his 365th summit of Pico Mountain in 362 days on Saturday June 18, 2022 to raise awareness and funding for Building Bright Futures.

Randy completed the final summit alongside his brother, Robin Crossman, his sister-in-law, Kim Levins, and family friend, Suzanne Sperry. Crossman celebrated the accomplishment with over 60 friends, family members, colleagues, and the Rutland community at the base of Pico Mountain and the Pico Ski Club.

Through PicoSummit365, Randy has climbed 717,955 vertical feet, completed 1,277 miles, and spent 638.75 hours hiking in extreme daily weather conditions (including in weather that reached 20 degrees below zero with 50 mile-per-hour winds) during every season over the course of 1 year. The vertical footage is equivalent to 25 summits of Mount Everest.

Through this effort Randy has raised more than $18,000 in pledges to support kids and families in Vermont. DONATE HERE. Follow Randy’s journey at his Facebook Page: PicoSummit365.
