The Summit Project is a Living Memorial, open for the participation of everyone. TSP is really about building and bolstering community.  We carry on the work of our fallen heroes — toward creating a safer, sounder, more just America.  With every trek, we want to ensure that our heroes’ memories remain ALIVE.  Through the TSP Non-Hosted Tribute Treks Program, We invite you to be part of this living memorial in any way that you can imagine. Just send us your ideas and we can make it happen.

The Summit Project Non-Hosted Tribute Treks Program welcomes teams of any size and any affiliation who want to carry stones, honor our fallen Maine heroes and sustain their memories.   If you represent a group, have an idea for a Team Event, we want to know it. We invite you to be part of The Summit Project, and we thank you for honoring our heroes through this living memorial.  There are ONLY three steps to get involved TODAY.

STEP ONE:   (The hardest step, bear with us!)  Please complete the embedded form below.  Please complete it as carefully and completely as you can.  Be as precise as you can with dates and times.

STEP TWO:  We will be in touch to approve your event and help facilitate the stone pickup.   Have fun and enjoy your adventure.  Be safe.   Make sure to follow the TSP guidelines for carrying the tribute stones.  Remember TSP is a living memorial and we honor the fallen by challenging the living — we want to live a life worthy of their sacrifice.

STEP THREE:   At the conclusion of your tribute trek, we ask (and require) every TSP participant to compose a short letter, addressed to the surviving family of the hero whose stone your have carried that reflects your experience.  The letter is your end of the bargain and your reflection essay, delivered to the families of the fallen, ensures that their memory stays alive.   The letters mean the world to the families and reassure them that their loved one is NOT forgotten and that their loved ones can continue to influence the lives of others and inspire others to life a life of honor, duty, courage and sacrifice.

PLEASE cut and paste the text of your essay on the comment box of the PAGE of the hero you honored.
