“On each of the seven continents of our world, there is but one peak that stands above the rest. These seven summits represent the highest land-based achievements obtainable by mankind.
The vision of our Challenge is for US Air Force members to carry the American and USAF flags to the highest point on each continent, ending atop the highest point on Earth. In doing so, we will be the first team of active duty American military members to reach the summit of Mt. Everest and the first team of military service members from any nation to reach all of the famed seven summits.”
