You can also support the team by sponsoring a prayer flag, which embodies peace, compassion, strength and wisdom. As wind blows through the flag, it symbolizes the carrying of prayers into the air and spreading goodwill and compassion to all. Sponsored prayer flags will be hung on the summit of Mount Marcy by the climbers and then returned to the donors to continue the tradition of letting blessings be carried by the wind.
