They will be missed. Christine was an amazing person that I'm fortunate to have known. Charlie was the quiet mountain man that I met a few times and left an impact with me.
Both left us too early and I'll carry fond memories for the rest of my life.
Mountain Madness will be hosting an open to the public event to celebrate the life of Christine Boskoff and raise funds to help cover the costs incurred for the search and recovery efforts to find her in China. Below is a rough outline of the event schedule. I will be speaking at this event. I hope you may be able to join us and taking a brief moment to celebrate Christine’s life and accomplishments.
