The Rainbow Summits Project is Cason's initiative to raise funds and awareness for The Trevor Project, the leading GLBTQ suicide and crisis prevention service, by climbing the highest peak on each continent—the “Seven Summits.” With his succesful ascent of Denali in July 2013, Cason became the first openly LGBT person and fifth youngest person to accomplish this feat.
The goal of this project is not only to raise donations for The Trevor Project, but also to improve awareness of LGBTQ involvement in athletics. For more information on The Rainbow Summits Project, please go to www.rainbowsummits.org.
