CENTRAL VANCOUVER — CrossFit Fort Vancouver owner Adam Neiffer and his team of friends are climbing Mount Hood to raise money for Share, a nonprofit that helps connect people with housing and food. Share posted on its Facebook page on July 22 that Neiffer had covered 55.39 miles up to an elevation of 15,220 feet, which took 21 hours and 11 minutes. The group, called Up, Down, and Around Mount Hood, had at that point raised $9,635 of a $2,000 goal on GoFundMe. Neiffer is married to Lauren Stender, the daughter of the late Rev. Jim Stender, a well-known known homeless advocate in the community who helped establish a Winter Hospitality Overflow shelter at St. Andrew Lutheran Church. “What started as a silly idea turned into a pretty epic adventure! Completing the task is cool, but the fundraiser part is AWESOME!” Neiffer said, according to Share’s Facebook page. “It’s a really creative way to give back to the community,” said Jessica Lightheart, community relations director at Share.
