"We offer a substance-free experience."

Getting over obstacles can be exhilarating says Nicole Pagano, co-owner of Ithaca's Green Street Pharmacy and a second-year participant. "I love that feeling, and I love when I see other people have that feeling, and facilitating other people getting to that feeling."

The Alcohol and Drug Council of Tompkins County and Cortland Prevention Resources will receive funds raised by the event. Registration is available online at greekpeak.net. The event is on Sunday, September 14th, with registration starting at 8am. Participant heats will be released into the course throughout the morning, beginning at 9am.
